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

// Here a date has been assigned
// while creating Date object
let DateObj = new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32:77');
 
// millisecond from above date object is
// being extracted using getMilliseconds().
let millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
// Printing millisecond
console.log(millisec);

                    

Output:

77

Example 2: The date of the month should lie 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 the date for the month does not exist. 

javascript

// Here a date has been assigned
// while creating Date object
let DateObj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32:77');
 
// millisecond from above dateobject is
// being extracted using getMilliseconds().
let millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
// Printing millisecond
console.log(millisec);

                    

Output:  

NaN

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

javascript

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

                    

Output:  

0

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

javascript

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

                    

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 the milliseconds range is in between 0 to 999 and 1003 is out of this range. 

javascript

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

                    

Output:  

0
