I have a requirement where I want to convert a String time "15:00" (pstTime String) in PST timezone to a string time "08:00"(gmtTime String) in GMT. The date is immaterial.
The way I'm trying to achieve this is by creating a PST Datetime from the 'pstTime String' and then getting the GMT Datetime from it to get the time component.
The problem is that I'm not able to create a PST Datetime from the 'PstTime string.
I have tried creating a Datetime with newInstance which returns the Datetime in GMT format. However, this time is a PST time so the GMT value is not correct. Even if I convert this to a PST timezone with offset, this will not show the correct result since I'm not able to set it in PST timezone.
String timeStr = "15:00"; String defaultTime = '00:00'; String ct = (timeStr != null) ? timeStr.split(':') : defaultTime.split(':'); Time t = time.newInstance(Integer.valueOf(ct), Integer.valueOf(ct), 0, 0); //dummy date creation to get time Datetime dt = Datetime.newInstanceGmt(System.today(), t);
Output of this is - 2018-08-16 15:00:00
How can I achieve something like this? Is it doable?
