But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course.

  • Example: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32');
 
  // date of the month from above Date Object is
  // being extracted using getDate()

The date.getDate() method is used to fetch the date of a month from a given Date object.
Syntax: 
 

DateObj.getDate()

Parameter: This method does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch the date of the month.
Return values: It returns the date of the month for the given date.The date of the month is an integer value ranging from 1 to 31.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() conctructor from which we want to fetch date.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Example1: The date of the month should must lie in between 1 to 31 because none of the month have date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because date for the month does not exist. 
 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var dateobj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32');
 
  // date of the month given above date object
  // is being extracted using getDate().
  var B = dateobj.getDate();
 
  // Printing date of the month.
  document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 



NaN

Example 2: If date of the month is not given, by default it returns 1. It is an exception case. 
 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var dateobj = new Date('October 1996 05:35:32');
 
  // date of the month from above date object
  // is extracted using getDate()
  var B = dateobj.getDate();
 
  // Printing date of the month
  document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

1

Example 3: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date constructor, then the function returns current date of the month. 
 

javascript




<script>
  // Creating Date Object
  var dateobj = new Date();
 
  // date of the month from above object
  // is being extracted using getDate().
  var B = dateobj.getDate();
  
  // Printing current date
  document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

21
