Returns the Interval expressed as a Number of whole or partial hours. Note, this does not return the just hours element of the interval but the entire interval expressed as hours. Thus, 1 day 12 hours and 30 minutes returns 36.5 and not 12.5 or 12.

If $MyInterval is 12 hours 30 minutes then:

$MyInterval.hour returns 12.5

To get an integer value, i.e. in whole hours, use either Number.precision() or floor(), thus:

$MyInterval.hour.precision(0) returns 12

floor($MyInterval.hour) returns 12
