Detailed Description

Extends DateTimePlus().

This class extends the basic component and adds in Drupal-specific handling, like translation of the format() method.

Static methods in base class can also be used to create DrupalDateTime objects. For example:

DrupalDateTime::createFromArray( array('year' => 2010, 'month' => 9, 'day' => 28) )

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

__construct (   $time = 'now',
  $timezone = NULL,
  $settings = array() 

Constructs a date object.

string$timeA date/input_time_adjusted string. Defaults to 'now'.
mixed$timezonePHP DateTimeZone object, string or NULL allowed. Defaults to NULL.
  • validate_format: (optional) Boolean choice to validate the created date using the input format. The format used in createFromFormat() allows slightly different values than format(). Using an input format that works in both functions makes it possible to a validation step to confirm that the date created from a format string exactly matches the input. This option indicates the format can be used for validation. Defaults to TRUE.
  • langcode: (optional) Used to control the result of the format() method. Defaults to NULL.
  • debug: (optional) Boolean choice to leave debug values in the date object for debugging purposes. Defaults to FALSE.

string$formatA format string using either PHP's date().

  • langcode: (optional) String two letter language code used to control the result of the format() method. Defaults to NULL.
string The formatted value of the date. Since the format may contain user input, this value should be escaped when output.
