DateObj.getMilliseconds()

In the above syntax, DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() conctructor from which we want to fetch milliseconds.

Parameter: This function does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch milliseconds.

// Here a date has been assigned

var DateObj = new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32:77');
  
// millisecond from above date object is
// being extracted using getMilliseconds().
var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
  
// Printing millisecond
console.log(millisec);

Output:

77

Errors and Exceptions:

  • Program 1: 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.
