Description

JET DvtTimeComponentScale

The interface for DvtTimeComponentScale. An instance of this interface defines a timescale, which can be used in the scale and/or zoom-order attributes of oj.ojTimeline, oj.ojGantt, or oj.ojTimeAxis. When using a custom timescale instance, the scale value in viewportChange event's payload will be the instance's "name" field value instead of the instance itself.

Date and Time Formats

The date/time data in the DvtTimeComponentScale plays a key role, not only in the representation of events in the order in which they occurred, but also in many other places, such as the time axis, event durations, time markers, size and position calculations for the overview locator window, etc.

The DvtTimeComponentScale supports a simplified version of the ISO 8601 extended date/time format. The format is as follows: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.sssZ

Symbol Description Values Examples
-, :, .,TCharacters actually in the string. T specifies the start of a time.
YYYYYear2013-03-22
2014-02
MMMonth01 to 12
DDDay of the month01 to 31
HHHours00 to 242013-02-04T15:20Z
2013-02-10T15:20:45.300Z
mmMinutes00 to 59
ssSeconds. The seconds and milliseconds are optional if a time is specified.00 to 59
sssMilliseconds00 to 999
ZThe value in this position can be one of the following. If the value is omitted, character 'Z' should be used to specify UTC time.
  • Z indicates UTC time.
  • +hh:mm indicates that the input time is the specified offset after UTC time.
  • -hh:mm indicates that the input time is the absolute value of the specified offset before UTC time.
2013-02-04T15:20:00-07:00
2013-02-04T15:20:00+05:00
2013-02-04T15:20:00Z

The ISO format support short notations where the string must only include the date and not time, as in the following formats: YYYY, YYYY-MM, YYYY-MM-DD.

The ISO format does not support time zone names. You can use the Z position to specify an offset from UTC time. If you do not include a value in the Z position, UTC time is used. The correct format for UTC should always include character 'Z' if the offset time value is omitted. The date-parsing algorithms are browser-implementation-dependent and, for example, the date string '2013-02-27T17:00:00' will be parsed differently in Chrome vs Firefox vs IE.

You can specify midnight by using 00:00, or by using 24:00 on the previous day. The following two strings specify the same time: 2010-05-25T00:00Z and 2010-05-24T24:00Z.

Type
string

getPreviousDate(date) : {string}

Takes in an arbitrary date, and returns the date representing the start of the interval in this scale that the specified date belongs to. For example, if the scale is weeks and begins on Sunday, and the input date represents Thursday, January 7, 2021, then the returned date should represent Sunday, January 3, 2021.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
