How to create a date with a set timezone without using a string representation?
  • Last Updated : 30 Jan, 2020

For creating a date with a set timezone without using a string representation, Date Object method is used. More about this method can be learnt from here. It is a built in function in Javascript used to work with dates and times.

Syntax:

new Date(year, month, date, hour, minute, second, millisecond)

Approach 1:
Using this method, you can create a date with a set timezone. All you have to do is to use this inbuilt function by typing new Date() and then store the value in a new variable. Then display the contents of this variable using document.getElementById(“demo”).innerHTML.

Example 1:




<html>
  
<body>
  
    <h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
  
    <p id="demo"></p>
  
    <script>
        var d = new Date(2019, 10, 4, 1, 43, 30, 0);
        document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = d;
    </script>
  
</body>
  
</html>

Output:



Approach 2:
Using Date() method, a new date is created and that is stored in a variable. then using getTimezoneOffset() method we are able to add or subtract the timezone offset.

Example 2:




<html>
  
<body>
  
    <h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
  
    <p id="demo"></p>
  
    <script>
        var d = new Date(2012, 9, 4);
        d.setTime(d.getTime() + d.getTimezoneOffset() * 60 * 1000);
        document.write(d);
    </script>
  
</body>
  
</html>

Output:
