To do this, a variety of time calculations are required to convert local time to destination time. This article explains how to do these calculations.
Create Date object for the current location
D = new Date ();
By calling the GetTime () method of the Data () object, you can display the number of milliseconds between January 1, 1970 and that time.
Convert to msec since 1 1970
LocalTime = D.gettime ();
Next, the local time offset value is identified by the getTimezoneOffset () method of the Data () object. By default, this method displays the time zone offset value results in minutes, so the value is converted to milliseconds in earlier calculations.
Obtain local UTC offset and convert to msec
Localoffset = D.gettimezoneoffset () * 60000;
Note that the negative return value of thegetTimezoneOffset () method indicates that local time precedes global Standard Time (UTC), whereas a positive return value indicates that local time is after global Standard Time (UTC).
Note : In case you want to know how I got the multiplier of 60000, remember that 1000 milliseconds equals one second, and one minute equals 60 seconds. Therefore, the Minutes are converted to milliseconds, with 60 times 1000 equals 60000.
The current international Standard Time (UTC) is added with the local time zone offset value.
Obtain UTC time in msec
UTC = LocalTime + localoffset;
Here, the variable UTC Contains the current international Standard Time (UTC). However, this time is represented by the number of milliseconds that are contained on January 1, 1970. Let it be said for the time being, because there are some calculations to be done.
After the International Standard Time (UTC) is obtained, the International Standard Time (UTC) Hour offset value for the target city is obtained, which is converted to milliseconds, plus international Standard Time (UTC).
Obtain and add destination ' s UTC time offset
For example, Bombay
Which is UTC + 5.5 hours
offset = 5.5;
Bombay = UTC + (3600000*offset);
Note : In case you want to know how I got the multiplier of 3600000, remember that 1000 milliseconds equals one second, and one hour equals 3,600 seconds. So, converting hours to milliseconds, 3600 times 1000 equals 3600000.
At this point, the variable Bombay contains local time in Mumbai, India. This local time is represented by the number of milliseconds that are contained in the January 1, 1970 to date. Obviously, this is not very reasonable, so we have to do some calculations.
By initializing a new Data () object and invoking the tolocalstring () method of the object, we convert the time value computed in the previous step into a date/time string that you can read.
Convert msec value to date string
nd = new Date (Bombay);
Document.writeln ("Bombay time is" + nd.tolocalestring () + "<br>");
So the conversion is done!
