Descrierea

Stil obiect-orientat

public string IntlDateFormatter::format ( mixed $value )

Stil procedural

string datefmt_format ( IntlDateFormatter $fmt , mixed $value )

Formats the time value as a string.

Parametri

fmt

The date formatter resource.

value

Value to format. This may be a DateTime object, an IntlCalendar object, a numeric type representing a (possibly fractional) number of seconds since epoch or an array in the format output by localtime().

If a DateTime or an IntlCalendar object is passed, its timezone is not considered. The object will be formatted using the formaterʼs configured timezone. If one wants to use the timezone of the object to be formatted, IntlDateFormatter::setTimeZone() must be called before with the objectʼs timezone. Alternatively, the static function IntlDateFormatter::formatObject() may be used instead.

Valorile întoarse

The formatted string or, if an error occurred, FALSE.

Istoria schimbărilor

5.5.0/PECL 3.0.0 Support for providing IntlCalendar objects to the value parameter was added.
5.3.4 Support for providing DateTime objects to the value parameter was added.

I hope this will save some time for others who have to struggle with different php versions on dev and prod plattform in the future:

when formatting a DateTime object with a *custom pattern*, be sure to use a timestamp to pass at the IntlDateFormatter::format in order to have it working on different php versions:

Example for PHP Version 5.3.5-1ubuntu7.2 (my dev machine):
<?php
$date
= new \DateTime();

$dateFormatter = \IntlDateFormatter::create(
  \
Locale::getDefault(),
  \
IntlDateFormatter::NONE,
  \
IntlDateFormatter::NONE,
  \
date_default_timezone_get(),
  \
IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN,
 
'EEEE'
);

var_dump($dateFormatter->format($date)); // string(6) "Monday"
?>

Example for PHP Version 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.9 (the prod server):
<?php
// same formatting as above

var_dump($dateFormatter->format($date)); // bool(false)
?>

When using $dateFormatter->format($date->getTimestamp()), you'll always get the formatted and localized string instead of a false.

You should know that PHPs IntlDateFormatter class uses ISO date format codes instead of PHPs date() format codes. It is not really clear mentioned from my point of view.

A good list to find ISO codes is available at http://framework.zend.com/manual/1.12/en/zend.date.constants.html#zend.date.constants.selfdefinedformats and such a list should be added here, too.

It's important to note that a conversion of timezones will be made from the default timezone (date_default_timezone_set()) and the timezone you passed in the constructor (or datefmt_create()).

If you are inserting the dates into your database as UTC time, make sure to set date_default_timezone_set to UTC as well (or any other timezone, but they need to be the same). Once you call ::format, you will get the converted time.
