C# Question

C# - write a program that displays the calendar, asking just for the year and month, use System.DateTime

I am stuck on this, i need help on how i can ask for user input to enter any year and any month, then that will output a monthly calendar for that specified year and month, i also need to use system.datetime
This is the code i have so far and i dont think it is correct, any help is appreciated. Thanks

class Program
{
static int year = new int();
static int month = new int();
static int[,] calendar = new int[6, 7];

static void Main(string[] args)
{
Console.Write("Enter the year? ");
year = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());
Console.Write("Enter the month (January = 1, etc): ");
month = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());

DrawHeader();
FillCalendar();
DrawCalendar();
Console.ReadLine();
}

static void DrawHeader()
{
Console.Write("\n\n");
Console.WriteLine("\t" + month);
Console.WriteLine("Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su");
}

static void FillCalendar()
{
int days = DateTime.DaysInMonth(year, month);
int currentDay = 1;
for (int i = 0; i < calendar.GetLength(0); i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < calendar.GetLength(1) && currentDay <= days; j++)
{
if (i == 0 && month > j)
{
calendar[i, j] = 0;
}
else
{
calendar[i, j] = currentDay;
currentDay++;
}
}
}
}

static void DrawCalendar()
{
for (int i = 0; i < calendar.GetLength(0); i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < calendar.GetLength(1); j++)
{
if (calendar[i, j] > 0)
{
if (calendar[i, j] < 10)
{
Console.Write(" " + calendar[i, j] + " ");
}
else
{
Console.Write(calendar[i, j] + " ");
}
}
else
{
Console.Write(" ");
}
}
Console.WriteLine("");
}
}
}

Answer

This should ensure that the day of the month is correctly aligned with the day of the week (i.e. December 1st is a Tuesday)

using System;
using System.Globalization;

namespace Calendar
{
class Program
{
    static int year = new int();
    static int month = new int();
    static int[,] calendar = new int[6, 7];
    private static DateTime date;

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Console.Write("Enter the year? ");
        year = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());
        Console.Write("Enter the month (January = 1, etc): ");
        month = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());

        date = new DateTime(year, month, 1);//gives you a datetime object for the first day of the month
        DrawHeader();
        FillCalendar();
        DrawCalendar();
        Console.ReadLine();
    }

    static void DrawHeader()
    {
        Console.Write("\n\n");
        //gives you the month and year at the top of the calendar
        Console.WriteLine(CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.GetMonthName(month) + " " + year);
        Console.WriteLine("Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su");
    }

    static void FillCalendar()
    {
        int days = DateTime.DaysInMonth(year, month);
        int currentDay = 1;
        var dayOfWeek = (int) date.DayOfWeek;
        for (int i = 0; i < calendar.GetLength(0); i++)
        {
            for (int j = 0; j < calendar.GetLength(1) && currentDay - dayOfWeek + 1 <= days; j++)
            {
                if (i == 0 && month > j)
                {
                    calendar[i, j] = 0;
                }
                else
                {
                    calendar[i, j] = currentDay - dayOfWeek + 1;
                    currentDay++;
                }
            }
        }
    }

    static void DrawCalendar()
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < calendar.GetLength(0); i++)
        {
            for (int j = 0; j < calendar.GetLength(1); j++)
            {
                if (calendar[i, j] > 0)
                {
                    if (calendar[i, j] < 10)
                    {
                        Console.Write(" " + calendar[i, j] + " ");
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        Console.Write(calendar[i, j] + " ");
                    }
                }
                else
                {
                    Console.Write("   ");
                }
            }
            Console.WriteLine("");
        }
    }
}
