UPDATE_SECOND

The function UPDATE_SECOND changes the value of the second in a Time or DateTime into another specified number.

This function takes two pieces of input: a Time or a DateTime, and a Number. It outputs the given Time or Datetime with the value of the second replaced by the given number.

Declaration

UPDATE_SECOND(datetime, new_second) -> new_datetime
UPDATE_SECOND(time, new_second) -> new_time

Parameters

datetime (type: DateTime)
Any DateTime.

time (type: Time)
Any Time.

new_second (required, type: Number)
The new second; this is the number that will replace whatever value is currently associated with the second in the given Time or DateTime.

Return Values

new_datetime (type: DateTime)
The DateTime that results from taking the given DateTime and replacing the second value with the given number.

new_time (type: Time)
The Time that results from taking the given Time and replacing the second value with the given number.

Examples

Assume the first example has access to the following DateTime value:

example_date_and_time = {  
 "date": {  
  "day": 1,  
  "month": 4,  
  "year": 2021  
 },  
 "time": {  
  "hour": 16,  
  "minute": 14,  
  "second": 38,  
  "millisecond": 0  
 },  
 "timeZone": "UTC"  
}

The following example takes the time described in example_date_and_time and replaces the given second value (38) with 2. Note that the only difference between the output of this example and example_date_and_time is the the value of the second. When given a DateTime as input, UPDATE_SECOND returns a DateTime:

UPDATE_SECOND(example_date_and_time, 2) = {  
 "date": {  
  "day": 1,  
  "month": 4,  
  "year": 2021  
 },  
 "time": {  
  "hour": 16,  
  "minute": 14,  
  "second": 2,  
  "millisecond": 0  
 },  
 "timeZone": "UTC"  
}

The above example demonstrates how the UPDATE_SECOND function behaves when given a DateTime as input. In order to further establish how the UPDATE_SECOND function behaves when given a Time as input, assume the last example has access to the following Time value:

example_time = {  
 "hour": 16,  
 "minute": 14,  
 "second": 38,  
 "millisecond": 0  
}

The following example takes the time described in example_time and replaces the given second value (38) with 2. Note that the only difference between the output of this example and example_time is the the value of the second. When given a Time as input, UPDATE_SECOND outputs a Time:

UPDATE_SECOND(example_time, 2) = {  
 "hour": 16,  
 "minute": 14,  
 "second": 2,  
 "millisecond": 0  
}
