The JavaScript Date getMinutes() Method is used to fetch the minutes from the given Date object. 
Syntax: 

DateObj.getMinutes()

Parameter: This function does not accept any parameter. 

Return Value: It returns the minutes for the given Date Object. Minutes is an integer value ranging from 0 to 59.:

Below is an example of the Date getMinutes() 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');
     
    // minutes from above DateObj is being
    // extracted using getMinutes().
    var minutes = DateObj.getMinutes();
     
    // Printing minute.
    console.log(minutes);
</script>

Output: 

35

Example 2: Here the date of the month must lie between 1 to 31 because no date has a month greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because the date for the month does not exist, minutes will not exist when date of the month is given as 35 i.e, greater than 31. 

javascript




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