public ZonedDateTime atStartOfDay(ZoneId zone)

Parameter: This method accepts a parameter zone which is the zone ID to be used and not necessary null. The parameter is not mandatory.

Return Value: It returns the the local date-time of midnight at the start of this date, not null.



Below programs illustrate the atStartOfDay() method of LocalDate in Java:

Program 1:




// Program to illustrate the atStartOfDay() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // parses the local date
        LocalDate dt = LocalDate.parse("2019-11-01");
        System.out.println(dt);
  
        // Function call
        LocalDateTime dt1 = dt.atStartOfDay();
        System.out.println(dt1);
    }
}
Output:
2019-11-01
2019-11-01T00:00

Program 2: Program with parameters.




// Program to illustrate the atStartOfDay() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.time.*;
  
public class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // parses the local date
        LocalDate dt = LocalDate.parse("2018-01-20");
        System.out.println(dt);
  
        // Function call
        ZonedDateTime dt1 = dt.atStartOfDay(ZoneId.systemDefault());
        System.out.println(dt1);
    }
}
Output:
2018-01-20
2018-01-20T00:00Z[Etc/UTC]
