PHP 5.4.31 Released

IntlCalendar::createInstance

(PHP 5.5.0, PECL >= 3.0.0a1)

IntlCalendar::createInstanceCreate a new IntlCalendar

Description

Object oriented style

public static IntlCalendar IntlCalendar::createInstance ([ mixed $timeZone = NULL [, string $locale = "" ]] )

Procedural style

IntlCalendar intlcal_create_instance ([ mixed $timeZone = NULL [, string $locale = "" ]] )

Given a timezone and locale, this method creates an IntlCalendar object. This factory method may return a subclass of IntlCalendar.

The calendar created will represent the time instance at which it was created, based on the system time. The fields can all be cleared by calling IntCalendar::clear() with no arguments. See also IntlGregorianCalendar::__construct().

Parameters

timeZone

The timezone to use.

  • NULL, in which case the default timezone will be used, as specified in the ini setting date.timezone or through the function date_default_timezone_set() and as returned by date_default_timezone_get().

  • An IntlTimeZone, which will be used directly.

  • A DateTimeZone. Its identifier will be extracted and an ICU timezone object will be created; the timezone will be backed by ICUʼs database, not PHPʼs.

  • A string, which should be a valid ICU timezone identifier. See IntlTimeZone::createTimeZoneIDEnumeration(). Raw offsets such as "GMT+08:30" are also accepted.

locale

A locale to use or NULL to use the default locale.

Return Values

The created IntlCalendar instance or NULL on failure.

Examples

Example #1 IntlCalendar::createInstance()

<?php
ini_set
('intl.default_locale''es_ES');
ini_set('date.timezone''Europe/Madrid');

$cal IntlCalendar::createInstance();
echo 
"No arguments\n";
var_dump(get_class($cal),
        
IntlDateFormatter::formatObject($calIntlDateFormatter::FULL));
echo 
"\n";

echo 
"Explicit timezone\n";
$cal IntlCalendar::createInstance(IntlTimeZone::getGMT());
var_dump(get_class($cal),
        
IntlDateFormatter::formatObject($calIntlDateFormatter::FULL));
echo 
"\n";

echo 
"Explicit locale (with calendar)\n";
$cal IntlCalendar::createInstance(NULL'es_ES@calendar=persian');
var_dump(get_class($cal),
        
IntlDateFormatter::formatObject($calIntlDateFormatter::FULL));

The above example will output:

No arguments
string(21) "IntlGregorianCalendar"
string(68) "martes 18 de junio de 2013 14:11:02 Hora de verano de Europa Central"

Explicit timezone
string(21) "IntlGregorianCalendar"
string(45) "martes 18 de junio de 2013 12:11:02 GMT+00:00"

Explicit locale (with calendar)
string(12) "IntlCalendar"
string(70) "martes 28 de Khordad de 1392 14:11:02 Hora de verano de Europa Central"
