The ofHoursMinutes(int, int) method of ZoneOffset Class in java.time package is used to obtain an instance of ZoneOffset using the offset in hours and minutes passed as the parameter. This method takes the hours and minutes as parameter in the form of int and converts it into the ZoneOffset. Syntax:

public static ZoneOffset 
    ofHoursMinutes(int hours, int minutes)

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters:

  • hours: which is int hours to be converted into an ZoneOffset instance. Its range is +18 to -18
  • minutes: which is int minutes to be converted into an ZoneOffset instance. Its range is -59 to +59

Return Value: This method returns a ZoneOffset instance parsed from the specified hours and minutes. Exception: This method throws DateTimeException if the hours and minutes is invalid. Below examples illustrate the ZoneOffset.ofHoursMinutes() method: Example 1: 

Java




// Java code to illustrate ofHoursMinutes() method
 
import java.time.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // Get the hours and minutes
        int hours = 5;
        int minutes = 20;
 
        // ZoneOffset using ofHoursMinutes() method
        ZoneOffset zoneOffset
            = ZoneOffset.ofHoursMinutes(hours, minutes);
 
        System.out.println(zoneOffset);
    }
}


Output:

+05:20

= Example 2: To demonstrate DateTimeException 

Java




// Java code to illustrate ofHoursMinutes() method
 
import java.time.*;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // Get the invalid hours and minutes
        int hours = 20;
        int minutes = 5;
 
        try {
            // ZoneOffset using ofHoursMinutes() method
            ZoneOffset zoneOffset
                = ZoneOffset.ofHoursMinutes(hours, minutes);
        }
 
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}


Output:
