Calendar

abstract class Calendar : Serializable, Cloneable, Comparable<Calendar!>
kotlin.Any
   ↳ java.util.Calendar

The class is an abstract class that provides methods for converting between a specific instant in time and a set of such as YEARMONTHDAY_OF_MONTHHOUR, and so on, and for manipulating the calendar fields, such as getting the date of the next week. An instant in time can be represented by a millisecond value that is an offset from the Epoch, January 1, 1970 00:00:00.000 GMT (Gregorian).

The class also provides additional fields and methods for implementing a concrete calendar system outside the package. Those fields and methods are defined as protected.

Like other locale-sensitive classes, Calendar provides a class method, getInstance, for getting a generally useful object of this type. Calendar's getInstance method returns a Calendar object whose calendar fields have been initialized with the current date and time:

 Calendar rightNow = Calendar.getInstance(); 

A Calendar object can produce all the calendar field values needed to implement the date-time formatting for a particular language and calendar style (for example, Japanese-Gregorian, Japanese-Traditional). Calendar defines the range of values returned by certain calendar fields, as well as their meaning. For example, the first month of the calendar system has value MONTH == JANUARY for all calendars. Other values are defined by the concrete subclass, such as ERA. See individual field documentation and subclass documentation for details.

Getting and Setting Calendar Field Values

The calendar field values can be set by calling the set methods. Any field values set in a Calendar will not be interpreted until it needs to calculate its time value (milliseconds from the Epoch) or values of the calendar fields. Calling the get, getTimeInMillis, getTime, add and roll involves such calculation.

Leniency

Calendar has two modes for interpreting the calendar fields, lenient and non-lenient. When a Calendar is in lenient mode, it accepts a wider range of calendar field values than it produces. When a Calendar recomputes calendar field values for return by get(), all of the calendar fields are normalized. For example, a lenient GregorianCalendar interprets MONTH == JANUARY, DAY_OF_MONTH == 32 as February 1.

When a Calendar is in non-lenient mode, it throws an exception if there is any inconsistency in its calendar fields. For example, a GregorianCalendar always produces DAY_OF_MONTH values between 1 and the length of the month. A non-lenient GregorianCalendar throws an exception upon calculating its time or calendar field values if any out-of-range field value has been set.

First Week Calendar defines a locale-specific seven day week using two parameters: the first day of the week and the minimal days in first week (from 1 to 7). These numbers are taken from the locale resource data when a Calendar is constructed. They may also be specified explicitly through the methods for setting their values.

When setting or getting the WEEK_OF_MONTH or WEEK_OF_YEAR fields, Calendar must determine the first week of the month or year as a reference point. The first week of a month or year is defined as the earliest seven day period beginning on getFirstDayOfWeek() and containing at least getMinimalDaysInFirstWeek() days of that month or year. Weeks numbered ..., -1, 0 precede the first week; weeks numbered 2, 3,... follow it. Note that the normalized numbering returned by get() may be different. For example, a specific Calendar subclass may designate the week before week 1 of a year as week n of the previous year.

Calendar Fields Resolution When computing a date and time from the calendar fields, there may be insufficient information for the computation (such as only year and month with no day of month), or there may be inconsistent information (such as Tuesday, July 15, 1996 (Gregorian) -- July 15, 1996 is actually a Monday). Calendar will resolve calendar field values to determine the date and time in the following way.

If there is any conflict in calendar field values, Calendar gives priorities to calendar fields that have been set more recently. The following are the default combinations of the calendar fields. The most recent combination, as determined by the most recently set single field, will be used.

For the date fields:

 YEAR + MONTH + DAY_OF_MONTH YEAR + MONTH + WEEK_OF_MONTH + DAY_OF_WEEK YEAR + MONTH + DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH + DAY_OF_WEEK YEAR + DAY_OF_YEAR YEAR + DAY_OF_WEEK + WEEK_OF_YEAR 
For the time of day fields:
 HOUR_OF_DAY AM_PM + HOUR 

If there are any calendar fields whose values haven't been set in the selected field combination, Calendar uses their default values. The default value of each field may vary by concrete calendar systems. For example, in GregorianCalendar, the default of a field is the same as that of the start of the Epoch: i.e., YEAR = 1970, MONTH = JANUARY, DAY_OF_MONTH = 1, etc.

Note: There are certain possible ambiguities in interpretation of certain singular times, which are resolved in the following ways:

  1. 23:59 is the last minute of the day and 00:00 is the first minute of the next day. Thus, 23:59 on Dec 31, 1999 < 00:00 on Jan 1, 2000 < 00:01 on Jan 1, 2000.
  2. Although historically not precise, midnight also belongs to "am", and noon belongs to "pm", so on the same day, 12:00 am (midnight) < 12:01 am, and 12:00 pm (noon) < 12:01 pm

The date or time format strings are not part of the definition of a calendar, as those must be modifiable or overridable by the user at runtime. Use DateFormat to format dates.

Field Manipulation The calendar fields can be changed using three methods: set(), add(), and roll().

set(f, value) changes calendar field f to value. In addition, it sets an internal member variable to indicate that calendar field f has been changed. Although calendar field f is changed immediately, the calendar's time value in milliseconds is not recomputed until the next call to get(), getTime(), getTimeInMillis(), add(), or roll() is made. Thus, multiple calls to set() do not trigger multiple, unnecessary computations. As a result of changing a calendar field using set(), other calendar fields may also change, depending on the calendar field, the calendar field value, and the calendar system. In addition, get(f) will not necessarily return value set by the call to the set method after the calendar fields have been recomputed. The specifics are determined by the concrete calendar class.

Example: Consider a GregorianCalendar originally set to August 31, 1999. Calling set(Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.SEPTEMBER) sets the date to September 31, 1999. This is a temporary internal representation that resolves to October 1, 1999 if getTime()is then called. However, a call to set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, 30) before the call to getTime() sets the date to September 30, 1999, since no recomputation occurs after set() itself.

add(f, delta) adds delta to field f. This is equivalent to calling set(f, get(f) + delta) with two adjustments:

Add rule 1. The value of field f after the call minus the value of field f before the call is delta, modulo any overflow that has occurred in field f. Overflow occurs when a field value exceeds its range and, as a result, the next larger field is incremented or decremented and the field value is adjusted back into its range.

Add rule 2. If a smaller field is expected to be invariant, but it is impossible for it to be equal to its prior value because of changes in its minimum or maximum after field f is changed or other constraints, such as time zone offset changes, then its value is adjusted to be as close as possible to its expected value. A smaller field represents a smaller unit of time. HOUR is a smaller field than DAY_OF_MONTH. No adjustment is made to smaller fields that are not expected to be invariant. The calendar system determines what fields are expected to be invariant.

In addition, unlike set(), add() forces an immediate recomputation of the calendar's milliseconds and all fields.

Example: Consider a GregorianCalendar originally set to August 31, 1999. Calling add(Calendar.MONTH, 13) sets the calendar to September 30, 2000. Add rule 1 sets the MONTH field to September, since adding 13 months to August gives September of the next year. Since DAY_OF_MONTH cannot be 31 in September in a GregorianCalendar, add rule 2 sets the DAY_OF_MONTH to 30, the closest possible value. Although it is a smaller field, DAY_OF_WEEK is not adjusted by rule 2, since it is expected to change when the month changes in a GregorianCalendar.

roll(f, delta) adds delta to field f without changing larger fields. This is equivalent to calling add(f, delta) with the following adjustment:

Roll rule. Larger fields are unchanged after the call. A larger field represents a larger unit of time. DAY_OF_MONTH is a larger field than HOUR.

Example: See java.util.GregorianCalendar#roll(int, int).

Usage model. To motivate the behavior of add() and roll(), consider a user interface component with increment and decrement buttons for the month, day, and year, and an underlying GregorianCalendar. If the interface reads January 31, 1999 and the user presses the month increment button, what should it read? If the underlying implementation uses set(), it might read March 3, 1999. A better result would be February 28, 1999. Furthermore, if the user presses the month increment button again, it should read March 31, 1999, not March 28, 1999. By saving the original date and using either add() or roll(), depending on whether larger fields should be affected, the user interface can behave as most users will intuitively expect.

DAY_OF_WEEK

static val DAY_OF_WEEK: Int

Field number for get and set indicating the day of the week. This field takes values SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, and SATURDAY.

Value: 7

DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH

static val DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH: Int

Field number for get and set indicating the ordinal number of the day of the week within the current month. Together with the DAY_OF_WEEK field, this uniquely specifies a day within a month. Unlike WEEK_OF_MONTH and WEEK_OF_YEAR, this field's value does not depend on getFirstDayOfWeek() or getMinimalDaysInFirstWeek(). DAY_OF_MONTH 1 through 7 always correspond to DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH 1; 8 through 14 correspond to DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH 2, and so on. DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH 0 indicates the week before DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH 1. Negative values count back from the end of the month, so the last Sunday of a month is specified as DAY_OF_WEEK = SUNDAY, DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH = -1. Because negative values count backward they will usually be aligned differently within the month than positive values. For example, if a month has 31 days, DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH -1 will overlap DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH 5 and the end of 4.

This field reflects the correct GMT offset value of the time zone of this Calendar if the TimeZone implementation subclass supports historical GMT offset changes.

Value: 15

Protected constructors

<init>

protected Calendar()

Constructs a Calendar with the default time zone and the default FORMAT locale.

<init>

protected Calendar(zone: TimeZone!, aLocale: Locale!)

Constructs a calendar with the specified time zone and locale.

Parameters
zone TimeZone!: the time zone to use
aLocale TimeZone!: the locale for the week data

Public methods

isSet

fun isSet(field: Int): Boolean

Determines if the given calendar field has a value set, including cases that the value has been set by internal fields calculations triggered by a get method call.

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field to test
Return
Boolean: true if the given calendar field has a value set; false otherwise.

clear

fun clear(): Unit

Sets all the calendar field values and the time value (millisecond offset from the Epoch) of this Calendar undefined. This means that will return false for all the calendar fields, and the date and time calculations will treat the fields as if they had never been set. A Calendar implementation class may use its specific default field values for date/time calculations. For example, GregorianCalendar uses 1970 if the YEAR field value is undefined.

See Also

clear

fun clear(field: Int): Unit

Sets the given calendar field value and the time value (millisecond offset from the Epoch) of this Calendar undefined. This means that will return false, and the date and time calculations will treat the field as if it had never been set. A Calendar implementation class may use the field's specific default value for date and time calculations.

The #HOUR_OF_DAY, #HOUR and #AM_PM fields are handled independently and the the resolution rule for the time of day is applied. Clearing one of the fields doesn't reset the hour of day value of this Calendar. Use to reset the hour value.

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field to be cleared.

setWeekDate

added in API level 1.7
open fun setWeekDate(weekYear: Int, weekOfYear: Int, dayOfWeek: Int): Unit

Sets the date of this Calendar with the the given date specifiers - week year, week of year, and day of week.

Unlike the set method, all of the calendar fields and time values are calculated upon return.

If weekOfYear is out of the valid week-of-year range in weekYear, the weekYear and weekOfYear values are adjusted in lenient mode, or an IllegalArgumentException is thrown in non-lenient mode.

The default implementation of this method throws an UnsupportedOperationException.
Requires API level 24 (Android 7.0, Nougat)

Parameters
weekYear Int: the week year
weekOfYear Int: the week number based on weekYear
dayOfWeek Int: the day of week value: one of the constants for the #DAY_OF_WEEK field: , ..., #SATURDAY.
Exceptions
IllegalArgumentException if any of the given date specifiers is invalid or any of the calendar fields are inconsistent with the given date specifiers in non-lenient mode
UnsupportedOperationException if any week year numbering isn't supported in this Calendar.

getTimeZone

open fun getTimeZone(): TimeZone!

Gets the time zone.

Return
TimeZone!: the time zone object associated with this calendar.

getWeeksInWeekYear

added in API level 1.7
open fun getWeeksInWeekYear(): Int

Returns the number of weeks in the week year represented by this Calendar.

The default implementation of this method throws an UnsupportedOperationException.
Requires API level 24 (Android 7.0, Nougat)

Return
Int: the number of weeks in the week year.
Exceptions
UnsupportedOperationException if any week year numbering isn't supported in this Calendar.

getActualMinimum

added in API level 1.2
open fun getActualMinimum(field: Int): Int

Returns the minimum value that the specified calendar field could have, given the time value of this Calendar.

The default implementation of this method uses an iterative algorithm to determine the actual minimum value for the calendar field. Subclasses should, if possible, override this with a more efficient implementation - in many cases, they can simply return getMinimum().

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field
Return
Int: the minimum of the given calendar field for the time value of this Calendar

getDisplayNames

added in API level 1.6
open fun getDisplayNames(field: Int, style: Int, locale: Locale!): MutableMap<String!, Int!>!

Returns a Map containing all names of the calendar field in the given style and locale and their corresponding field values. For example, if this Calendar is a , the returned map would contain "Jan" to #JANUARY, "Feb" to #FEBRUARY, and so on, in the short style in an English locale.

Narrow names may not be unique due to use of single characters, such as "S" for Sunday and Saturday. In that case narrow names are not included in the returned Map.

The values of other calendar fields may be taken into account to determine a set of display names. For example, if this Calendar is a lunisolar calendar system and the year value given by the #YEAR field has a leap month, this method would return month names containing the leap month name, and month names are mapped to their values specific for the year.

The default implementation supports display names contained in a DateFormatSymbols. For example, if field is #MONTH and style is , this method returns a Map containing all strings returned by DateFormatSymbols#getShortMonths() and DateFormatSymbols#getMonths().
Requires API level 9 (Android 2.3, Gingerbread)

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field for which the display names are returned
style Int: the style applied to the string representation; one of (#SHORT), #SHORT_STANDALONE, #LONG_FORMAT (#LONG), #LONG_STANDALONE, #NARROW_FORMAT, or #NARROW_STANDALONE
locale Int: the locale for the display names
Return
MutableMap<String!, Int!>!: a Map containing all display names in style and locale and their field values, or null if no display names are defined for field
Exceptions
IllegalArgumentException if field or style is invalid, or if this Calendar is non-lenient and any of the calendar fields have invalid values
NullPointerException if locale is null

isLenient

open fun isLenient(): Boolean

Tells whether date/time interpretation is to be lenient.

Return
Boolean: true if the interpretation mode of this calendar is lenient; false otherwise.

getWeekYear

added in API level 1.7
open fun getWeekYear(): Int

Returns the week year represented by this Calendar. The week year is in sync with the week cycle. The is the first day of the week year.

The default implementation of this method throws an UnsupportedOperationException.
Requires API level 24 (Android 7.0, Nougat)

Return
Int: the week year of this Calendar
Exceptions
UnsupportedOperationException if any week year numbering isn't supported in this Calendar.

getMinimalDaysInFirstWeek

open fun getMinimalDaysInFirstWeek(): Int

Gets what the minimal days required in the first week of the year are; e.g., if the first week is defined as one that contains the first day of the first month of a year, this method returns 1. If the minimal days required must be a full week, this method returns 7.

Return
Int: the minimal days required in the first week of the year.

add

abstract fun add(field: Int, amount: Int): Unit

Adds or subtracts the specified amount of time to the given calendar field, based on the calendar's rules. For example, to subtract 5 days from the current time of the calendar, you can achieve it by calling:

add(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, -5).

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field.
amount Int: the amount of date or time to be added to the field.

setFirstDayOfWeek

open fun setFirstDayOfWeek(value: Int): Unit

Sets what the first day of the week is; e.g., SUNDAY in the U.S., MONDAY in France.

Parameters
value Int: the given first day of the week.

clone

open fun clone(): Any

Creates and returns a copy of this object.

Return
Any: a copy of this object.
Exceptions
CloneNotSupportedException if the object's class does not support the Cloneable interface. Subclasses that override the clone method can also throw this exception to indicate that an instance cannot be cloned.

getGreatestMinimum

abstract fun getGreatestMinimum(field: Int): Int

Returns the highest minimum value for the given calendar field of this Calendar instance. The highest minimum value is defined as the largest value returned by for any possible time value. The greatest minimum value depends on calendar system specific parameters of the instance.

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field.
Return
Int: the highest minimum value for the given calendar field.

getTimeInMillis

open fun getTimeInMillis(): Long

Returns this Calendar's time value in milliseconds.

Return
Long: the current time as UTC milliseconds from the epoch.

roll

abstract fun roll(field: Int, up: Boolean): Unit

Adds or subtracts (up/down) a single unit of time on the given time field without changing larger fields. For example, to roll the current date up by one day, you can achieve it by calling:

roll(Calendar.DATE, true). When rolling on the year or Calendar.YEAR field, it will roll the year value in the range between 1 and the value returned by calling getMaximum(Calendar.YEAR). When rolling on the month or Calendar.MONTH field, other fields like date might conflict and, need to be changed. For instance, rolling the month on the date 01/31/96 will result in 02/29/96. When rolling on the hour-in-day or Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY field, it will roll the hour value in the range between 0 and 23, which is zero-based.

Parameters
field Int: the time field.
up Int: indicates if the value of the specified time field is to be rolled up or rolled down. Use true if rolling up, false otherwise.

roll

added in API level 1.2
open fun roll(field: Int, amount: Int): Unit

Adds the specified (signed) amount to the specified calendar field without changing larger fields. A negative amount means to roll down.

NOTE: This default implementation on Calendar just repeatedly calls the version of roll() that rolls by one unit. This may not always do the right thing. For example, if the DAY_OF_MONTH field is 31, rolling through February will leave it set to 28. The GregorianCalendar version of this function takes care of this problem. Other subclasses should also provide overrides of this function that do the right thing.

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field.
amount Int: the signed amount to add to the calendar field.

get

open fun get(field: Int): Int

Returns the value of the given calendar field. In lenient mode, all calendar fields are normalized. In non-lenient mode, all calendar fields are validated and this method throws an exception if any calendar fields have out-of-range values. The normalization and validation are handled by the #complete() method, which process is calendar system dependent.

Parameters
field Int: the given calendar field.
Return
Int: the value for the given calendar field.
Exceptions
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException if the specified field is out of range (field < 0 || field >= FIELD_COUNT).

getMaximum

abstract fun getMaximum(field: Int): Int

Returns the maximum value for the given calendar field of this Calendar instance. The maximum value is defined as the largest value returned by the get method for any possible time value. The maximum value depends on calendar system specific parameters of the instance.

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field.
Return
Int: the maximum value for the given calendar field.

hashCode

added in API level 1.2
open fun hashCode(): Int

Returns a hash code for this calendar.

Return
Int: a hash code value for this object.

setTimeZone

open fun setTimeZone(value: TimeZone!): Unit

Sets the time zone with the given time zone value.

Parameters
value TimeZone!: the given time zone.

equals

open fun equals(other: Any?): Boolean

Compares this Calendar to the specified Object. The result is true if and only if the argument is a Calendar object of the same calendar system that represents the same time value (millisecond offset from the Epoch) under the same Calendar parameters as this object.

The Calendar parameters are the values represented by the isLenient, getFirstDayOfWeek, getMinimalDaysInFirstWeek and getTimeZone methods. If there is any difference in those parameters between the two Calendars, this method returns false.

Use the compareTo method to compare only the time values.

Parameters
obj Any?: the object to compare with.
Return
Boolean: true if this object is equal to obj; false otherwise.

toString

open fun toString(): String

Return a string representation of this calendar. This method is intended to be used only for debugging purposes, and the format of the returned string may vary between implementations. The returned string may be empty but may not be null.

Return
String: a string representation of this calendar.

setTimeInMillis

open fun setTimeInMillis(millis: Long): Unit

Sets this Calendar's current time from the given long value.

Parameters
millis Long: the new time in UTC milliseconds from the epoch.

compareTo

added in API level 1.5
open fun compareTo(other: Calendar!): Int

Compares the time values (millisecond offsets from the Epoch) represented by two Calendar objects.

Parameters
o Calendar!: the object to be compared.
anotherCalendar Calendar!: the Calendar to be compared.
Return
Int: the value 0 if the time represented by the argument is equal to the time represented by this Calendar; a value less than 0 if the time of this Calendar is before the time represented by the argument; and a value greater than 0 if the time of this Calendar is after the time represented by the argument.
Exceptions
NullPointerException if the specified object is null
ClassCastException if the specified object's type prevents it from being compared to this object.
NullPointerException if the specified Calendar is null.
IllegalArgumentException if the time value of the specified Calendar object can't be obtained due to any invalid calendar values.

getDisplayName

added in API level 1.6
open fun getDisplayName(field: Int, style: Int, locale: Locale!): String!

Returns the string representation of the calendar field value in the given style and locale. If no string representation is applicable, null is returned. This method calls get(field) to get the calendar field value if the string representation is applicable to the given calendar field.

For example, if this Calendar is a GregorianCalendar and its date is 2005-01-01, then the string representation of the #MONTH field would be "January" in the long style in an English locale or "Jan" in the short style. However, no string representation would be available for the #DAY_OF_MONTH field, and this method would return null.

The default implementation supports the calendar fields for which a DateFormatSymbols has names in the given locale.
Requires API level 9 (Android 2.3, Gingerbread)

Parameters
field Int: the calendar field for which the string representation is returned
style Int: the style applied to the string representation; one of (#SHORT), #SHORT_STANDALONE, #LONG_FORMAT (#LONG), #LONG_STANDALONE, #NARROW_FORMAT, or #NARROW_STANDALONE.
locale Int: the locale for the string representation (any calendar types specified by locale are ignored)
Return
String!: the string representation of the given field in the given style, or null if no string representation is applicable.
Exceptions
IllegalArgumentException if field or style is invalid, or if this Calendar is non-lenient and any of the calendar fields have invalid values
NullPointerException if locale is null

Protected methods

complete

protected open fun complete(): Unit

Fills in any unset fields in the calendar fields. First, the method is called if the time value (millisecond offset from the Epoch) has not been calculated from calendar field values. Then, the #computeFields() method is called to calculate all calendar field values.

computeFields

protected abstract fun computeFields(): Unit

Converts the current millisecond time value #time to calendar field values in fields[]. This allows you to sync up the calendar field values with a new time that is set for the calendar. The time is not recomputed first; to recompute the time, then the fields, call the #complete() method.

See Also

computeTime

protected abstract fun computeTime(): Unit

Converts the current calendar field values in fields[] to the millisecond time value #time.

internalGet

protected fun internalGet(field: Int): Int

Returns the value of the given calendar field. This method does not involve normalization or validation of the field value.

Parameters
field Int: the given calendar field.
Return
Int: the value for the given calendar field.

See Also

Properties

areFieldsSet
