[ date->millisecondsInDay ]


[Date->MillisecondsInDay] is an accessor for getting or setting the millisecondsinday field for a date object. Ranges from 0 to 23:59:59.999 (regardless of DST).

Getting uses no parameters and returns the millisecondsinday value 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.

  • Syntax
Date Object->millisecondsinday
Date Object->millisecondsinday=Integer
Date Object->millisecondsinday+=Integer
Date Object->millisecondsinday-=Integer
  • Beginner

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

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

Next we set the millisecondsinday field to a new value using the = operator, then set it again by adding 1000 to the millisecondsinday using the += operator, and set it once more by subtracting 1000 from the millisecondsinday using the -= operator. We return the result for each set operation.


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