IntlCalendar::setLenientSet whether date/time interpretation is to be lenient


Object-oriented style

public IntlCalendar::setLenient(bool $lenient): true

Procedural style

intlcal_set_lenient(IntlCalendar $calendar, bool $lenient): true

Defines whether the calendar is ‘lenient mode’. In such a mode, some of out-of-bounds values for some fields are accepted, the behavior being similar to that of IntlCalendar::add() (i.e., the value wraps around, carrying into more significant fields each time). If the lenient mode is off, then such values will generate an error.



An IntlCalendar instance.


Use true to activate the lenient mode; false otherwise.

Return Values

Always returns true.


Version Description
8.2.0 The return type is true now; previously, it was bool.


See the example in IntlCalendar::isLenient().
