=head1 NAME

Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Datetime - Datetime column metadata.


  use Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Datetime;

  $col = Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Datetime->new(...);


Objects of this class store and manipulate metadata for datetime columns in a database.  Column metadata objects store information about columns (data type, size, etc.) and are responsible for creating object methods that manipulate column values.

This class inherits from L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Date>. Inherited methods that are not overridden will not be documented a second time here.  See the L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Date> documentation for more information.

=item B<parse_value DB, VALUE>

Convert VALUE to the equivalent L<DateTime> object.  VALUE maybe returned unmodified if it is a valid datetime keyword or otherwise has special meaning to the underlying database.  DB is a L<Rose::DB> object that is used as part of the parsing process.  Both arguments are required.

=item B<time_zone [TZ]>

Get or set the time zone of the values stored in this column.  TZ should be a time zone name that is understood by L<DateTime::TimeZone>.

=item B<type>

Returns "datetime".
