JavaScript Date getMilliseconds() Method

  • Last Updated : 30 Nov, 2021

Below is the example of Date getMilliseconds() method. 

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. 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. Now at it's lowest price ever!

  • Example:

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
  document.write(millisec);
</script>
  • Output:
77

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.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
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. 

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
  document.write(millisec);
</script>

Output:  



NaN

Program 2: If 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
  document.write(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

0

Example 3: If nothing as 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
  document.write(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

279

Example 4: If millisecond as 1003 is given while creating the Date object, the function will return 0 as 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
  document.write(millisec);
</script>

Output:  

0
