First of all I want to say sorry, that I don’t write anything for such a long time, but I’ve a really big project running and this is why I have no time for blogging at the moment. BUT I want share a little codesnippet with you. The project I mentioned is a big community site and therefor I needed a cool way to get the age from a user, but we only have his birthday. And nearly all solutions google shows me don’t respect the leap-years. So I have to look for a solution on myself. And yeah it’s pretty easy with the “new” PHP DateTime. Take a look:
<?php $oDateNow = new DateTime(); $oDateBirth = new DateTime($sDateBirth); $oDateIntervall = $oDateNow->diff($oDateBirth); /* @var $oDateIntervall DateInterval */ echo $oDateIntervall->y;
That’s it. Easy, huh?
The next post in abount two weeks hopefully will announce the “big” project I’m working on. So stay tuned…
