DateTimeZone() and DateTime()

Hello,

Hope all is good.

Not an issue with your products.

In the example link I give in the private area, I would like to show the time of a Session as it wouod be in the Presenters location. All Sessions are in the America/Los_Angeles time zone, and so in PDT. But the location of Presenters varies. So if someone is in Italy, I would like the Session StartTime to be displayed as in the Europe/Rome time zone.

I can get things to workj using NOW. But I get constant errors when I try tio reac both the StartTime and the time zone from a database.

Thank you for any help.

Hello,

I suddenly seem to have got this working.

<?php
$dt = new DateTime($rsFridayCombo->getColumnVal("StartTime"), new DateTimeZone('America/Los_Angeles'));
echo $dt->format('D M jS g:i a T') . "<br />";
$dt->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone(html_entity_decode( trim( $rsPresenters->getColumnVal("Timezone")))));
echo $dt->format('D M jS g:i a T') . "<br />";
?>

As you can see, I had to tame the database timezone value by stripping it and etc of extraneous junk.

That now for example prints out:

Fri Jan 20th 12:00 pm PST
Sat Jan 21st 7:00 am AEDT



Thank you.
