Swift Question

I saved a date in a sqlite database. Know I try to get the hours and the minutes. But the hours are shifted by 2.

`print(calendar.timeZone)`

while result.next() {

var hour = 0

var minute = 0

let calendar = NSCalendar.currentCalendar()

if #available(iOS 8.0, *) {

calendar.getHour(&hour, minute: &minute, second: nil, nanosecond: nil, fromDate: result.dateForColumn("time"))

print(result.dateForColumn("time"))

print("the hour is \(hour) and minute is \(minute)")

}

}

I get the following output:

`Europe/Berlin (GMT+2) offset 7200 (Daylight)`

2016-08-17 18:44:57 +0000

the hour is 20 and minute is 44

2016-08-18 18:44:57 +0000

the hour is 20 and minute is 44

2016-08-19 15:44:57 +0000

the hour is 17 and minute is 44

2016-08-18 16:44:57 +0000

the hour is 18 and minute is 44

2016-08-17 18:44:57 +0000

the hour is 20 and minute is 44

2016-08-18 18:44:57 +0000

the hour is 20 and minute is 44

2016-08-19 15:44:57 +0000

the hour is 17 and minute is 44

2016-08-18 16:44:57 +0000

the hour is 18 and minute is 44

The timezone is correct. I tryed two other solutions. But it is always the same problem.

Answer

The `result.dateForColumn("time")`

is in `UTC`

since you have `+0000`

whereas the second output is in another timezone (`Europe/Berlin (GMT+2)`

), so the date is the same.
