time.Time.Local() 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.Local() function in Go language is used to find “t” with the location that is set to local time. Moreover, this function is defined under the time package. Here, you need to import the “time” package in order to use these functions.

Syntax:

func (t Time) Local() Time

Here, “t” is the stated time.

Return Value: It returns “t” along with the location that is set to local time.

Example 1:






// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Local() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Defining t parameter of Local method
    t := time.Date(2019, 2, 11, 10, 
              03, 00, 00, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling Local method
    local := t.Local()
  
    // Prints output
    fmt.Printf("%v\n", local)
}

Output:

2019-02-11 10:03:00 +0000 UTC

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Local() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Defining location using FixedZone method
    location := time.FixedZone("UTC-7", -6*56*34)
  
    // Defining t for calling Local method
    t := time.Date(2019, 2, 11, 10, 03, 00, 00, location)
  
    // Calling Local method
    local := t.Local()
  
    // Prints output
    fmt.Printf("%v\n", local)
}

Output:

2019-02-11 13:13:24 +0000 UTC

Here, FixedZone() method is used in order to define the location parameter of the Date() method so the time in output is returned according to that location.
