The method is applied to the following object:

Parameters

The method has the following parameters:

InputDate

Specifies the original date and time.

Months

Specifies the number of months to change. If Months is positive, then the given number is added. If Months is negative, then the given number is subtracted.

Result Value

January 31st + 1 month = February 31st (not a valid day) = February 29th (leap year) or February 28th (non-leap year)

May 31st - 1 month = April 31st (not a valid day) = April 30th

Example

The code below demonstrates how you can change a date and/or time by adding some values to it.

JavaScript, JScript

function ChangingTime()
{
  var Time1, Time2, Time3, Time4, Time5, Time6, Time7;

  Time1 = aqDateTime.Now();
  Time2 = aqDateTime.AddDays(Time1, 5);
  Time3 = aqDateTime.AddHours(Time1, 7);
  Time4 = aqDateTime.AddMinutes(Time1, 24);
  Time5 = aqDateTime.AddMonths(Time1, 2);
  Time6 = aqDateTime.AddSeconds(Time1, 15);
  Time7 = aqDateTime.AddTime(Time1, 9, 3, 24, 51);

  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time1));
  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time2));
  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time3));
  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time4));
  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time5));
  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time6));
  Log.Message(aqConvert.DateTimeToStr(Time7));
}
