IntlDateFormatter::setLenient

datefmt_set_lenient

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

IntlDateFormatter::setLenient -- datefmt_set_lenientSet the leniency of the parser

Description

Object oriented style

public bool IntlDateFormatter::setLenient ( bool $lenient )

Procedural style

bool datefmt_set_lenient ( IntlDateFormatter $fmt , bool $lenient )

Define if the parser is strict or lenient in interpreting inputs that do not match the pattern exactly. Enabling lenient parsing allows the parser to accept otherwise flawed date or time patterns, parsing as much as possible to obtain a value. Extra space, unrecognized tokens, or invalid values ("February 30th") are not accepted.

Parameters

fmt

The formatter resource

lenient

Sets whether the parser is lenient or not, default is TRUE (lenient).

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 datefmt_set_lenient() example

<?php
$fmt 
datefmt_create(
    
'en_US'
    
IntlDateFormatter::FULL
    
IntlDateFormatter::FULL
    
'America/Los_Angeles'
    
IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN
    
'dd/mm/yyyy'
);
echo 
'lenient of the formatter is : ';
if (
$fmt->isLenient()) {
    echo 
'TRUE';
} else {
    echo 
'FALSE';
}
datefmt_parse($fmt'35/13/1971');
echo 
"\n Trying to do parse('35/13/1971').\nResult is : " datefmt_parse($fmt'35/13/1971');
if (
intl_get_error_code() != 0) {
    echo 
"\nError_msg is : " intl_get_error_message();
    echo 
"\nError_code is : " intl_get_error_code();
}
datefmt_set_lenient($fmtfalse);
echo 
'Now lenient of the formatter is : ';
if (
$fmt->isLenient()) {
    echo 
'TRUE';
} else {
    echo 
'FALSE';
}
datefmt_parse($fmt'35/13/1971');
echo 
"\nTrying to do parse('35/13/1971').\nResult is : " datefmt_parse($fmt'35/13/1971');
if (
intl_get_error_code() != 0) {
    echo 
"\nError_msg is : ".intl_get_error_message();
    echo 
"\nError_code is : ".intl_get_error_code();
}

?>

Example #2 OO example

<?php
$fmt 
= new IntlDateFormatter(
    
'en_US',
    
IntlDateFormatter::FULL,
    
IntlDateFormatter::FULL,
    
'America/Los_Angeles',
    
IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN,
    
'dd/mm/yyyy'
);
echo 
'lenient of the formatter is : ';
if (
$fmt->isLenient()) {
    echo 
'TRUE';
} else {
    echo 
'FALSE';
}
$fmt->parse('35/13/1971');
echo 
"\n Trying to do parse('35/13/1971').\nResult is : " $fmt->parse('35/13/1971');
if (
intl_get_error_code() != 0) {
    echo 
"\nError_msg is : " intl_get_error_message();
    echo 
"\nError_code is : " intl_get_error_code();
}

$fmt->setLenient(FALSE);
echo 
'Now lenient of the formatter is : ';
if (
$fmt->isLenient()) {
    echo 
'TRUE';
} else {
    echo 
'FALSE';
}
$fmt->parse('35/13/1971');
echo 
"\n Trying to do parse('35/13/1971').\nResult is : " $fmt->parse('35/13/1971');
if (
intl_get_error_code() != 0) {
    echo 
"\nError_msg is : " intl_get_error_message();
    echo 
"\nError_code is : " intl_get_error_code();
}

?>

The above example will output:

lenient of the formatter is : TRUE
Trying to do parse('35/13/1971').
Result is : -2147483
Now lenient of the formatter is : FALSE
Trying to do parse('35/13/1971').
Result is : 
Error_msg is : Date parsing failed: U_PARSE_ERROR
Error_code is : 9
