Description

Object-oriented style

public DateTime::setTime(
    int $hour,
    int $minute,
    int $second = 0,

): DateTime

Procedural style

date_time_set(
    DateTime $object,
    int $hour,
    int $minute,
    int $second = 0,
    int $microsecond = 0
): DateTime

Resets the current time of the DateTime object to a different time.

Like DateTimeImmutable::setTime() but works with DateTime.

The procedural version takes the DateTime object as its first argument.

hour

Hour of the time.

minute

Minute of the time.

second

Second of the time.

microsecond

7.1.0 The microsecond parameter was added.
