Extended de Gennes-Fisher (EdGF) local-functional method has been applied to the thermodynamic Casimir effect away from the critical point for systems in the Ising universality class confined between parallel plane plates with symmetric boundary conditions [denoted (ab)=(++)]. Results on the universal scaling functions of the Casimir force W++(y) (y is a temperature-dependent scaling variable) and Gibbs adsorption Ğ(y) are presented in spatial dimension d=3. Also, the mean-field form of the universal scaling function of the Gibbs adsorption Ğ(y) is derived within the local functional theory. Asymptotic behavior of W++(y) for large values of the scaling variable y is analyzed in general dimension d.
