Examples

Example #1 DateTime::__construct() example

Object oriented style

<?php
try {
    
$date = new DateTime('2000-01-01');
} catch (
Exception $e) {
    echo 
$e->getMessage();
    exit(
1);
}

echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d');
?>

Procedural style

<?php
$date 
date_create('2000-01-01');
if (!
$date) {
    
$e date_get_last_errors();
    foreach (
$e['errors'] as $error) {
        echo 
"$error\n";
    }
    exit(
1);
}

echo 
date_format($date'Y-m-d');
?>

The above examples will output:

 2000-01-01 

Example #2 Intricacies of DateTime::__construct()

<?php
// Specified date/time in your computer's time zone.
$date = new DateTime('2000-01-01');
echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d H:i:sP') . "\n";

// Specified date/time in the specified time zone.
$date = new DateTime('2000-01-01', new DateTimeZone('Pacific/Nauru'));
echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d H:i:sP') . "\n";

// Current date/time in your computer's time zone.
$date = new DateTime();
echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d H:i:sP') . "\n";

// Current date/time in the specified time zone.
$date = new DateTime(null, new DateTimeZone('Pacific/Nauru'));
echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d H:i:sP') . "\n";

// Using a UNIX timestamp.  Notice the result is in the UTC time zone.
$date = new DateTime('@946684800');
echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d H:i:sP') . "\n";

// Non-existent values roll over.
$date = new DateTime('2000-02-30');
echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d H:i:sP') . "\n";
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

 2000-01-01 00:00:00-05:00 2000-01-01 00:00:00+12:00 2010-04-24 10:24:16-04:00 2010-04-25 02:24:16+12:00 2000-01-01 00:00:00+00:00 2000-03-01 00:00:00-05:00
