IntervalNumber Method (PITimeFormat Object)

See Also     Example         


The IntervalNumber method, given an interval name, returns the ordinal number of the interval that encloses this object's time value.


object.IntervalNumber IntervalName

The IntervalNumber method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object An object expression that evaluates to a PITimeFormat object.
IntervalName An interval name or index from the TimeIntervals collection.



The Ordinal property of TimeInterval objects produces the same result as the IntervalNumber property.

The PITimeFormat object will use the currently set time zone property or the system default if none is set.

An example of the use for IntervalNumber method is to find the month in which a given time falls. For the time 13-Feb-02 6:30, the IntervalNumber for Month would give the number 2 and the IntervalNumber for Day would give the number 13.
