PHP 7.2.0 Beta 1 Released

MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime::__construct

(mongodb >=1.0.0)

MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime::__constructConstruct a new UTCDateTime

Description

final public MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime::__construct ([ integer|float|string|DateTimeInterface $milliseconds = NULL ] )

Parameters

milliseconds (integer|float|string|DateTimeInterface)

Number of milliseconds since the Unix epoch (Jan 1, 1970). Negative values represent dates before 1970. This value may be provided as a 64-bit integer. For compatibility on 32-bit systems, this parameter may also be provided as a float or string.

If the argument is a DateTimeInterface, the number of milliseconds since the Unix epoch will be derived from that value. Note that in versions of PHP versions before 7.1.0, DateTime and DateTimeImmutable objects constructed from the current time did not incorporate sub-second precision.

If this argument is NULL, the current time will be used by default.

Version Description
1.2.0

The milliseconds argument is optional and defaults to NULL (i.e. current time). The argument also accepts a DateTimeInterface, which may be used to derive the number of milliseconds since the Unix epoch.

Examples

Example #1 MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime::__construct() example

<?php

var_dump
(new MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime);

var_dump(new MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime(new DateTime));

var_dump(new MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime(1416445411987));

?>

The above example will output something similar to:

object(MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime)#1 (1) {
  ["milliseconds"]=>
  string(13) "1484852905560"
}
object(MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime)#1 (1) {
  ["milliseconds"]=>
  string(13) "1484852905560"
}
object(MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime)#1 (1) {
  ["milliseconds"]=>
  string(13) "1416445411987"
}

For me to get it work with php 5.6 on an iis 7.5, it had to be a string

$utcdatetime = new MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime('1416445411987');
