Question:I am given a unix timestamp like this:
1655402413and am needing to find find the midnight of the Monday (in UTC/GMT format) of the same week, regardless of what day it is or what time zone. I then need to represent that Monday as a unix timestamp and return it. The function I have is as follows:
- If given a timestamp that evaluates to midnight on a Monday in UTC/GMT format, depending on the time zone of the user, it returns the Monday of the previous week (because
startDateevaluates to the Sunday before the Monday), which is not good.
mondaythat is returned is in local time, not UTC/GMT time.
Answer:Multiply the unix timestamp by 1000, and use the UTC methods like
Of course to return as unix time, just divide by 1000.
If you have better answer, please add a comment about this, thank you!
