NAME

Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Datetime - Datetime column metadata.

SYNOPSIS

  use Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Datetime;

  $col = Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Datetime->new(...);
  $col->make_method(...);
  ...

DESCRIPTION

Objects of this class store and manipulate metadata for datetime columns in a database. Column metadata objects store information about columns (data type, size, etc.) and are responsible for creating object methods that manipulate column values.

This class inherits from Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Date. Inherited methods that are not overridden will not be documented a second time here. See the Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Date documentation for more information.

OBJECT METHODS

method_maker_class

Returns Rose::DB::Object::MakeMethods::Date.

method_maker_type

Returns datetime.

parse_value DB, VALUE

Convert VALUE to the equivalent DateTime object. VALUE maybe returned unmodified if it is a valid datetime keyword or otherwise has special meaning to the underlying database. DB is a Rose::DB object that is used as part of the parsing process. Both arguments are required.

type

Returns "datetime".
