const class sys::DateTime

sys::Obj
  sys::DateTime

@Serializable { simple=true }

Source

DateTime represents an absolute instance in time. Fantom time is normalized as nanosecond ticks since 1 Jan 2000 UTC with a supported range of 1901 to 2099. Fantom time does not support leap seconds (same as Java and UNIX). An instance of DateTime also models the date and time of an absolute instance against a specific TimeZone.

Also see docLang.

boot

const static DateTime boot()

Source

Get the boot time of the Fantom VM with TimeZone.cur

compare

virtual override Int compare(Obj obj)

Source

Compare based on nanosecond ticks.

date

Date date()

Source

Get the date component of this timestamp.

day

Int day()

Source

Get the day of the month as a number between 1 and 31.

dayOfYear

Int dayOfYear()

Source

Return the day of the year as a number between 1 and 365 (or 1 to 366 if a leap year).

defVal

const static DateTime defVal

Source

Default value is "2000-01-01T00:00:00Z UTC".

dst

Bool dst()

Source

Return if this time is within daylight savings time for its associated time zone.

equals

virtual override Bool equals(Obj? that)

Source

Two times are equal if have identical nanosecond ticks.

floor

DateTime floor(Duration accuracy)

Source

Return a new DateTime with this time's nanosecond ticks truncated according to the specified accuracy. For example floor(1min) will truncate this time to the minute such that seconds are 0.0. This method is strictly based on absolute ticks, it does not take into account wall-time rollovers.

fromHttpStr

const static DateTime? fromHttpStr(Str s, Bool checked := true)

Source

Parse an HTTP date according to the RFC 2616 section 3.3.1. If invalid format and checked is false return null, otherwise throw ParseErr. The following date formats are supported:

Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT  ; RFC 822, updated by RFC 1123
Sunday, 06-Nov-94 08:49:37 GMT ; RFC 850, obsoleted by RFC 1036
Sun Nov  6 08:49:37 1994       ; ANSI C's asctime() format
fromIso

const static DateTime? fromIso(Str s, Bool checked := true)

Source

Parse an ISO 8601 timestamp. If invalid format and checked is false return null, otherwise throw ParseErr. The following formats are supported:

YYYY-MM-DD'T'hh:mm:ss[.FFFFFFFFF]
YYYY-MM-DD'T'hh:mm:ss[.FFFFFFFFF]+HH:MM
YYYY-MM-DD'T'hh:mm:ss[.FFFFFFFFF]-HH:MM

If a timezone offset is specified, then one the predefined "Etc/GMT+x" timezones are used for the result:

DateTime("2009-01-15T12:00:00Z")       =>  2009-01-15T12:00:00Z UTC
DateTime("2009-01-15T12:00:00-05:00")  =>  2009-01-15T12:00:00-05:00 GMT+5

Also see toIso, fromStr, and fromHttpStr.

fromJava

const static DateTime? fromJava(Int millis, TimeZone tz := TimeZone.cur(), Bool negIsNull := true)

Source

Create date for Java milliseconds since the epoch of 1 Jan 1970 using the specified timezone (defaults to current). If millis are less than or equal to zero then return null or a date before 1970 depending on the negIsNull flag.

fromLocale

const static DateTime? fromLocale(Str str, Str pattern, TimeZone tz := TimeZone.cur(), Bool checked := true)

Source

Parse a string into a DateTime using the given pattern. If string is not a valid format then return null or raise ParseErr based on checked flag. See toLocale for pattern syntax.

The timezone is inferred from the zone pattern, or else the given tz parameter is used for the timezone. The z pattern will match "hh:mm", "hhmm", or "hh". If only a zone offset is available and it doesn't match the expected tz parameter, then use a "GMT+/-" timezone. Note that if offset is a fractional hour such as GMT-3:30, then result will have ticks, but its tz will be floored hour based GMT timezone such as GMT-3.

fromStr

static new fromStr(Str s, Bool checked := true)

Source

Parse the string into a DateTime from the programmatic encoding defined by toStr. If the string cannot be parsed into a valid DateTime and checked is false then return null, otherwise throw ParseErr. Also see fromIso and fromHttpStr.

hash

virtual override Int hash()

Source

Return nanosecond ticks for the hashcode.

hour

Int hour()

Source

Get the hour of the time as a number between 0 and 23.

hoursInDay

Int hoursInDay()

Source

Return the number of hours for this date and this timezone. Days which transition to DST will be 23 hours and days which transition back to standard time will be 25 hours. Note there one timezone "Lord_Howe" which has a 30min offset which is not handled by this method (WTF).

isLeapYear

const static Bool isLeapYear(Int year)

Source

Return if the specified year is a leap year.

isMidnight

Bool isMidnight()

Source

Return if the time portion is "00:00:00".

make

static new make(Int year, Month month, Int day, Int hour, Int min, Int sec := 0, Int ns := 0, TimeZone tz := TimeZone.cur())

Source

Make for the specified date and time values:

  • year: 1901-2099
  • month: Month enumeration
  • day: 1-31
  • hour: 0-23
  • min: 0-59
  • sec: 0-59
  • ns: 0-999_999_999
  • tz: time zone used to map date/time to ns ticks

Throw ArgErr is any of the parameters are out of range.

makeTicks

const static DateTime makeTicks(Int ticks, TimeZone tz := TimeZone.cur())

Source

Make for nanosecond ticks since 1 Jan 2000 UTC. Throw ArgErr if ticks represent a year out of the range 1901 to 2099.

midnight

DateTime midnight()

Source

Return a DateTime for the beginning of the current day at midnight.

min

Int min()

Source

Get the minutes of the time as a number between 0 and 59.

minus

@Operator
DateTime minus(Duration duration)

Source

Subtract a duration to compute a new time. This method works off absolute time, so subtracting 1days means to subtract 24 hours from the ticks. This might be a different time of day if on a DST boundry. Use Date.minus for daily increments.

Example:

prevHour := DateTime.now - 1hr
minusDateTime

@Operator
Duration minusDateTime(DateTime time)

Source

Return the delta between this and the given time.

Example:

elapsed := DateTime.now - startTime
month

Month month()

Source

Get the month of this date.

nanoSec

Int nanoSec()

Source

Get the number of nanoseconds (the fraction of seconds) as a number between 0 and 999,999,999.

now

const static DateTime now(Duration? tolerance := 250ms)

Source

Return the current time using TimeZone.cur. The tolerance parameter specifies that you are willing to use a cached DateTime instance as long as (now - cached <= tolerance). If tolerance is null, then this method always creates a new DateTime instance. Using tolerance can increase performance and save memory. The tolerance default is 250ms.

If you are using time to calculate relative time periods, then use Duration.now instead. Duration is more efficient and won't cause you grief when the system clock is modified.

nowTicks

const static Int nowTicks()

Source

Return the current time as nanosecond ticks since 1 Jan 2000 UTC.

nowUnique

const static Int nowUnique()

Source

Return the current time as nanosecond ticks since 1 Jan 2000 UTC, but with the guarantee that every call returns a unique value for the lifetime of this VM. Since most platforms don't actually support nanosecond resolution, the unused nanoseconds are used as a counter to ensure uniqueness. However, bursts of calls may result in a drift from the actual system time. For example if the platform's clock supports millisecond resolution, then calling this method more than one million time within a millisecond will introduce a millisecond drift (1,000,000ns in a ms).

nowUtc

const static DateTime nowUtc(Duration? tolerance := 250ms)

Source

Return the current time using TimeZone.utc. See now for a description of the tolerance parameter.

plus

@Operator
DateTime plus(Duration duration)

Source

Add a duration to compute a new time. This method works off absolute time, so adding 1days means to add 24 hours to the ticks. This might be a different time of day if on a DST boundry. Use Date.plus for daily increments.

Example:

nextHour := DateTime.now + 1hr
sec

Int sec()

Source

Get the whole seconds of the time as a number between 0 and 59.

ticks

Int ticks()

Source

Return number of nanosecond ticks since 1 Jan 2000 UTC. Dates before this epoch will return a negative integer.

time

Time time()

Source

Get the time component of this timestamp.

Format this time for use in an MIME or HTTP message according to RFC 2616 using the RFC 1123 format:

Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT
toIso

Str toIso()

Source

Format this instance according to ISO 8601 using the pattern:

Also see fromIso, toStr, and toHttpStr.

toJava

Int toJava()

Source

Get this date in Java milliseconds since the epoch of 1 Jan 1970.

toLocale

Str toLocale(Str? pattern := null, Locale locale := Locale.cur())

toRel

DateTime toRel()

Source

Convenience for toTimeZone(TimeZone.rel). See docLang.

toStr

virtual override Str toStr()

Source

Return programmatic string encoding formatted as follows:

"YYYY-MM-DD'T'hh:mm:ss.FFFFFFFFFz zzzz"

See toLocale for the pattern legend. The base of the string encoding conforms to ISO 8601 and XML Schema Part 2. The Fantom format also appends the timezone name to avoid the ambiguities associated with interpretting the time zone offset. Also see toIso and toHttpStr.

Examples:

"2000-04-03T00:00:00.123Z UTC"
"2006-10-31T01:02:03-05:00 New_York"
"2009-03-10T11:33:20Z London"
"2009-03-01T12:00:00+01:00 Amsterdam"
toTimeZone

DateTime toTimeZone(TimeZone tz)

Source

Convert this DateTime to the specific timezone. The absolute point time as ticks remains the same, but the date and time fields will be converted to represent the new time zone. However if converting to or from TimeZone.rel then the resulting DateTime has the same day and time. Also see toUtc and toRel.

Example:

dt := DateTime("2010-06-03T10:30:00-04:00 New_York")
dt.toUtc  =>  2010-06-03T14:30:00Z UTC
dt.toRel  =>  2010-06-03T10:30:00Z Rel
toUtc

DateTime toUtc()

Source

Convenience for toTimeZone(TimeZone.utc).

tz

TimeZone tz()

Source

Get the time zone associated with this date time.

tzAbbr

Str tzAbbr()

Source

Get the time zone's abbreviation for this time. See TimeZone.stdAbbr and TimeZone.dstAbbr.

weekOfYear

Int weekOfYear(Weekday startOfWeek := Weekday.localeStartOfWeek())

Source

Return the week number of the year as a number between 1 and 53 using the given weekday as the start of the week (defaults to current locale).

weekday

Weekday weekday()

Source

Get the day of the week for this time.

weekdayInMonth

const static Int weekdayInMonth(Int year, Month mon, Weekday weekday, Int pos)

Source

This method computes the day of month (1-31) for a given weekday. The pos parameter specifies the first, second, third, or fourth occurence of the weekday. A negative pos is used to compute the last (or second to last, etc) weekday in the month.

Examples:

// compute the second monday in Apr 2007
weekdayInMonth(2007, Month.apr, Weekday.mon, 2)

// compute the last sunday in Oct 2007
weekdayInMonth(2007, Month.oct, Weekday.sun, -1)
year

Int year()

Source

Get the year as a number such as 2007.
