Below is the example of Date getMonth() method.

       // Creating a Date Object

The date.getMonth() method is used to fetch the month(0 to 11) from given Date object.

Syntax:

DateObj.getMonth()

Parameter: This function does not accept any parameter.

Return Value: It returns the Month for the given Date object. The month is an integer value ranging from 0 to 11. Zero (0) means January, 1 means February, and so on till 11 means December.



More codes for the above method are as follows:

Program 1: Here the date of the month should lie in between 1 to 31 because no date can have month greater than 31. That is why it returns NaN i.e, Not a Number if the month in the Date object is greater than 31.




<script type="text/javascript">
   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32');
  
   // Month from above Date Object is being 
   // Extracted using getMonth()
   var months = DateObj.getMonth();
  
   // Printing month.
   document.write(months);
</script>


Output:

NaN

Program 2: If month is not given, it returns zero (0).




<script type="text/javascript">
   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date('1996 05:35:32');
  
   // Month from above Date Object is being 
   // Extracted using getMonth()
   var months = DateObj.getMonth();
  
   // Printing month.
   document.write(months);
</script>


Output:

0

Program 3: If nothing as parameter is given, it returns current month.




<script type="text/javascript">
   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date();
  
   // Month from above Date Object is being 
   // Extracted using getMonth()
   var months = DateObj.getMonth();
  
   // Printing month.
  document.write(months);
</script>


Output:
