Creates a TDateTime value that represents a specified Year, Month, and Day.

TryEncodeDate generates a TDateTime value from the values specified as the Year, Month, and Day parameters.

The year must be from 1 through 9999.

Valid Month values are from 1 through 12.

Valid Day values are from 1 through 28, 29, 30, or 31, depending on the Month value. For example, the possible Day values for month 2 (February) are from 1 through 28 or from 1 through 29, depending on whether the Year value specifies a leap year.

The Date parameter returns the generated value if TryEncodeDate returns True.

If the specified values are not within range, TryEncodeDate returns False.
