Lucee Function Reference


Creates a CFML time object from the given hour, minute and second


createtime(number hour,[number minute,[number second,[number millisecond,[timezone timezone]]]]):datetime


The arguments for this function are set. You can not use other arguments except the following ones.
Name Type Required Default Value Description
hour number  Yes   Number in the range 0-23  
minute number  No 0 Number in the range 0-59  
second number  No 0 Number in the range 0-59  
millisecond number  No 0 Number in the range 0-999  
timezone timezone  No   A datetime object is independent of a specific timezone, it is only an offset in milliseconds from 1970-1-1 00.00:00 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
This means that the timezone only comes into play when you need specific information like hours in a day, minutes in a hour or which day it is since those calculations depend on the timezone.
For these calculations, a timezone must be specified in order to translate the date object to something else. If you do not provide the timezone in the function call, it will default to the timezone specified in the Lucee Administrator (Settings/Regional), or the timezone specified for the current request using the function setTimezone.
You can find a list of all available timezones in the Lucee administrator (Settings/Regional). Some examples of valid timezones:
- AGT (for time in Argentina)
- Europe/Zurich (for time in Zurich/Switzerland)
- HST (Hawaiian Standard Time in the USA)
