LocalTime minusSeconds() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 04 Dec, 2018

The minusSeconds() method of LocalTime class is used to subtract specified no of Seconds value from this LocalTime and return the result as a LocalTime object. This instant is immutable. The calculation wraps around midnight.

Syntax:

public LocalTime minusSeconds(long SecondsToSubtract)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter SecondsToSubtract which is the value of Seconds to be subtracted, it can be a negative value.

Return value: This method returns a LocalTime based on this time with the Seconds subtracted.

Below programs illustrate the minusSeconds() method:

Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.minusSeconds() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a LocalTime object
        LocalTime time
            = LocalTime.parse("19:34:50.63");
  
        // print LocalTime
        System.out.println("LocalTime before subtraction: "
                           + time);
  
        // subtract 200 Seconds using minusSeconds()
        LocalTime value = time.minusSeconds(200);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalTime after subtraction: "
                           + value);
    }
}
Output:
LocalTime before subtraction: 19:34:50.630
LocalTime after subtraction: 19:31:30.630

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// LocalTime.minusSeconds() method
  
import java.time.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create a LocalTime object
        LocalTime time
            = LocalTime.parse("01:00:01");
  
        // print LocalTime
        System.out.println("LocalTime before subtraction: "
                           + time);
  
        // subtract -3400 Seconds using minusSeconds()
        LocalTime value = time.minusSeconds(-3400);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("LocalTime after subtraction: "
                           + value);
    }
}
Output:
LocalTime before subtraction: 01:00:01
LocalTime after subtraction: 01:56:41
