DateTime interface

A JavaScript object implementing the DateTime interface represents a time period with an optional timezone. The end of the range does not need to be specified, in which case it is implicit from the start time and the precision.

DateTime objects are used to specify dates and time values in a StoreObject.


Use O.datetime().


function toString()

Returns a human-readable string representation. For clarity, the format will depend on the precision and the values of the range.

function toHTML()

Returns a similar string to toString(), but with the text elements surrounded by HTML markup for extra clarity when displayed in a web page.

property start

The start time of the range in the UTC timezone, as a JavaScript Date object.

property end

The end time of the range in the UTC timezone, as a JavaScript Date object.

There will always be an end date, but if a range end was not explicitly specified when the DateTime object was created, it will be generated using the start and precision. Use the specifiedAsRange property if you need to determine if it is an explicit range.

property specifiedAsRange

true if the DateTime object was specified explicitly as a range.

property precision

The precision of this DateTime, as one of the DateTime precision constants.

property timezone

A String representing the timezone, for example, 'GMT' or 'Europe/London'. If no timezone is specified, this property will be null.
