time.Time.IsZero() Function in Golang With Examples

  • Last Updated : 19 Apr, 2020

In Go language, time packages supplies functionality for determining as well as viewing time. The Time.IsZero() function in Go language is used to check if the stated time “t” implies zero time instant or not i.e, January 1, year 1, 00:00:00 UTC. Moreover, this function is defined under the time package. Here, you need to import “time” package in order to use these functions.

Syntax:

func (t Time) IsZero() bool

Here, “t” is the stated time.

Return Value: It returns true if the stated time implies zero time instant else it returns false.

Example 1:






// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.IsZero() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Defining t parameter of IsZero method
    t := time.Date(0001, 1, 1, 00, 00, 00, 00, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling IsZero method
    IsZeroOrnot := t.IsZero()
  
    // Prints output
    fmt.Printf("%v\n", IsZeroOrnot)
}

Output:

true

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.IsZero() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Defining t parameter 
    // of IsZero method
    t := time.Date(0001, 2, 1, 00, 
             00, 00, 00, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling IsZero method
    IsZeroOrnot := t.IsZero()
  
    // Prints output
    fmt.Printf("%v\n", IsZeroOrnot)
}

Output:

false
