[ date->hourOfDay ]

Method

[Date->HourOfDay] is an accessor for getting or setting the hourofday field for a date object.

Getting uses no parameters and returns the hourofday as an integer.

Setting requires an integer parameter, and supports the =, += and -= operators. Setting modifies the date object in-place, but does not return a value.

[Date->HourOfDay] and [Date->Hour] are synonyms.

  • Syntax
Date Object->hourofday
Date Object->hourofday=Integer
Date Object->hourofday+=Integer
Date Object->hourofday-=Integer
Examples
  • Beginner

To get or set the hourofday field of a date object:

Use the [Date->HourOfDay] method. The following example uses a single date object, then gets the hourofday and returns its value.

Next we set the hourofday field to a new value using the = operator, then set it again by adding 1 to the hourofday using the += operator, and set it once more by subtracting 1 from the hourofday using the -= operator. We return the result for each set operation.

Code

local(d) = date('2011-02-21 08:00:00')
#d->hourofday + '<br>'
#d->hourofday=5
#d + '<br>'
#d->hourofday+=1
#d + '<br>'
#d->hourofday-=1
#d
