hms

Hour, minute, and second numbers of datetime or duration

Description

example

[h,m,s] = hms(t) returns the hour, minute, and second values of the datetime or duration values in t as separate numeric arrays. The h and m outputs contain integer values, and the s output can contain a fractional part. h, m, and s are the same size as t.

Calling hms on a datetime array is equivalent to calling the hour, minute, and second functions.

Examples

t1 = datetime('now','Format','HH:mm:ss.SSS');
t = t1 + minutes(0:45:135)
t = 1x4 datetime array
   11:07:16.866   11:52:16.866   12:37:16.866   13:22:16.866

[h,m,s] = hms(t)
h = 1×4

    11    11    12    13

m = 1×4

     7    52    37    22

s = 1×4

   16.8661   16.8661   16.8661   16.8661

hms returns the hour, minute, and second numbers in separate arrays.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input dates and times, specified as a datetime or duration array.

Data Types: datetime | duration

Output Arguments

collapse all

Hour numbers, returned as a numeric array of integer values from 0 to 23. The h output is of type double and is the same size as t.

Minute numbers, returned as a numeric array of integer values from 0 to 59. The m output is of type double and is the same size as t.

Second numbers, returned as a numeric array of values from 0 to less than 60, and can include a fractional part. For datetime values whose time zone is UTCLeapSeconds, the s output can contain a value between 60 and 61 for times that fall during a leap second occurrence. The s output is of type double and is the same size as t.
