The minus() method of java.time.chrono.ThaiBuddhistDate class is used to get the ThaiBuddhist date after subtracting an amount of temporal accessor unit from the current ThaiBuddhist date.

Syntax: 

public ThaiBuddhistDate minus(
           long amountToSubtract,
           TemporalUnit unit)

Parameter: This method takes the following argument as a parameter: 

  • amountToSubtract: This is the value of temporal unit which is going to subtract from the current ThaiBuddhist date.
  • unit: The object of temporal unit or chrono unit.

Return Value: This method returns the ThaiBuddhist date after subtracting an amount of temporal accessor unit from current ThaiBuddhist date.

Below are the examples to illustrate the minus() method:

Example 1:  

Java




// Java program to demonstrate minus() method
 
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // ThaiBuddhistDate Object
            ThaiBuddhistDate hidate
                = ThaiBuddhistDate.now();
 
            // Display the result
            System.out.println(
                "Old ThaiBuddhist date: "
                + hidate);
 
            // Subtracting ThaiBuddhist date
            // by using minus() method
            ThaiBuddhistDate newdate
                = hidate.minus(
                    22, ChronoUnit.DAYS);
 
            // Display the result
            System.out.println(
                "New ThaiBuddhist date: "
                + newdate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
 
            System.out.println(
                "Passed parameter can"
                + " not form a date");
 
            System.out.println(
                "Exception thrown: "
                + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Old ThaiBuddhist date: ThaiBuddhist BE 2563-05-03
New ThaiBuddhist date: ThaiBuddhist BE 2563-04-11

 

Example 2: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate minus() method
 
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
 
            // Creating and initializing
            // ThaiBuddhistDate Object
            ThaiBuddhistDate hidate
                = ThaiBuddhistDate.now();
 
            // Display the result
            System.out.println(
                "Old ThaiBuddhist date: "
                + hidate);
 
            // Subtracting ThaiBuddhist date
            // by using minus() method
            ThaiBuddhistDate newdate
                = hidate.minus(
                    4, ChronoUnit.DECADES);
 
            // Display the result
            System.out.println(
                "New ThaiBuddhist date: "
                + newdate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
 
            System.out.println(
                "Passed parameter can"
                + " not form a date");
 
            System.out.println(
                "Exception thrown: "
                + e);
        }
    }
}

Output: 

Old ThaiBuddhist date: ThaiBuddhist BE 2563-05-03
New ThaiBuddhist date: ThaiBuddhist BE 2523-05-03
