The date.getMilliseconds() method is used to fetch the milliseconds from a given Date object.

Syntax:  

DateObj.getMilliseconds()

Parameter: This function does not accept any parameter. 

Return values: It returns the millisecond for the given date object. Milliseconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 999.

Below is the example of Date.getMilliseconds() method. 

Example 1:

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  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);
</script>

Output:

77

Example 2: The date of the month should lie in between 1 to 31 because none of the months have a 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 05:35:32:77');
  
  // millisecond from above dateobject is
  // being extracted using getMilliseconds().
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
  
  // Printing millisecond
  console.log(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

NaN

Example 3: If a millisecond is not given, it returns zero (0). 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32');
  
  // millisecond from above dateobject is being
  // extracted using getMilliseconds()
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
  
  // Printing millisecond
  console.log(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

0

Example 4: If nothing as a parameter is given to the Date() constructor, it returns current millisecond.

javascript




<script>
  // Creating a Date Object
  var DateObj = new Date();
  
  // millisecond from above Date object is being
  // extracted using getMilliSeconds()
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
  
  // Printing current millisecond
   console.log(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

279

Example 5: If a millisecond as 1003 is given while creating the Date object, the function will return 0 as an exception because milliseconds range is in between 0 to 999 and 1003 is out of this range. 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32:1003');
  
  // millisecond from above dateobject is being
  // extracted using getMilliseconds()
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
  
  // Printing millisecond
  console.log(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

0
