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');
 
  // minutes from above DateObj is being
  // extracted using getMinutes().
  var minutes = DateObj.getMinutes();
 
  // Printing minute.
  document.write(minutes);
</script>
  • Output: 
     
35

The date.getMinutes() method is used to fetch the minutes from 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.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Example 1: Here the date of the month must lie in between 1 to 31 because no date has 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 33 i.e, greater than 31. 
 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating a Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 35, 1996 05:35:32');
 
  // minutes from above DateObj is
  // being extracted using getMinutes()
  var minutes = DateObj.getMinutes();
 
  // Printing minutes
  document.write(minutes);
</script>

Output: 
 



NaN

Example 2: If minutes is not given, it returns zero (0). 
 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 12, 1996');
 
  // minutes from above DateObj is
  // being extracted using getMinutes()
  var minutes = DateObj.getMinutes();
 
  // Printing minutes
  document.write(minutes);
</script>

Output: 
 

0

Example 3: If nothing as parameter is given, it returns present minute. 
 

javascript




<script>
  // Creating a date object
  var DateObj = new Date();
 
  // minutes from above DateObj is
  // being extracted using getMinutes()
  var minute = DateObj.getMinutes();
 
  // Printing current minute
  document.write(minute);
