The IntlDateFormatter class

(PHP 5 >= 5.3.0, PHP 7, PECL intl >= 1.0.0)

Introduction

Date Formatter is a concrete class that enables locale-dependent formatting/parsing of dates using pattern strings and/or canned patterns.

This class represents the ICU date formatting functionality. It allows users to display dates in a localized format or to parse strings into PHP date values using pattern strings and/or canned patterns.

Predefined Constants

These constants are used to specify different formats in the constructor for DateType and TimeType.

IntlDateFormatter::NONE (integer)
Do not include this element
IntlDateFormatter::FULL (integer)
Completely specified style (Tuesday, April 12, 1952 AD or 3:30:42pm PST)
IntlDateFormatter::LONG (integer)
Long style (January 12, 1952 or 3:30:32pm)
IntlDateFormatter::MEDIUM (integer)
Medium style (Jan 12, 1952)
