%NextMonth function


Old name
%NextMonthT
Function
The function returns the begin time of next month that is moved by an offset given by the parameter Offset. Values of the parameter Offset may be negative, too. Result is a value of Absolute time type.
Declaration
TIME %NextMonth(
   INT in Offset, 
   UNIVAL in CalcTrigger,
   TEXT in timeZone := %GetCurrentTimeZone()
 )
Parameters
offsetOffset [s].
CalcTriggerObject - a change of its value causes the function to be recalculated. Its type is optional.
timeZoneName of the time zone used for conversion to local time (e.g. "Europe/London") or definition of fixed offset from UTC using format "(+|-)hh[:mi[:ss]]", where hh defines number of hours, mi defines number of minutes, and ss defines number of seconds. Sign as well as number of hours are mandatory parts of offset definition, number of minutes and seconds are optional and default to 0 (e.g. "+02:30" defines offset of 2 hours and 30 minutes from UTC). Empty text has the same meaning as function %GetCurrentTimeZone.
Note: For historical reasons, integer parameter is also accepted. Its interpretation is as follows: 0 - zone "Europe/London", 3600 - zone "Europe/Bratislava", 7200 - zone "Europe/Kiev", 21600 - zone "Asia/Almaty". Usage of integer parameter is deprecated and generates warning into log file!
