Function IsLeapYear(ByVal year as Integer) as Boolean


  • year : Specified year.

Return Value: It returns True if the specified year is leap year otherwise it returns False value.

'DateTime class.

Imports System

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim ret As Boolean = False

        ret = DateTime.IsLeapYear(2024)
        If (ret = True) Then
            Console.WriteLine("Specified year is leap year")
            Console.WriteLine("Specified year is not leap year")
        End If
    End Sub
End Module


Specified year is leap year
Press any key to continue . . .


In the above program, we created a module Module1 that contains the Main() function. The Main() function is the entry point for the program.

In the Main() function, we created a boolean variable ret that is initialized with False. Here, we checked specified year is a leap year or not using IsLeapYear() method of DateTime class and print the appropriate message on the console screen.
