Function result

TDateTime value for DateString


ISO8601ToDate is a function used to convert a string using ISO 8601 date/time notation to a native TDateTime type.

DateString contains the date/time value expressed using ISO 8601 notation.

ReturnUTC indicates if the TDateTime value should be adjusted to reflect the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) time zone. The default value for the argument is True.

ISO8601ToDate calls the TryISO8601ToDate function to perform the conversion, and raises an EConvertError exception if DateString contains an invalid ISO 8601 date/time value. The return value contains the native TDateTime value for the timestamp (adjusted to UTC when requested).

Use DateToISO8601 to convert the native date/time value back to its representation using ISO 8601 date/time notation.
