Below is the example of Date getTimezoneOffset() method.
// If nothing is in parameter it takes
// the current date while creating Date object
// Extracting the time difference between
// UTC and local time
diff = date.getTimezoneOffset();
//Printing on console
The date.getTimezoneOffset() method is used to return the time difference between Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) and local time, in minutes. If your time zone is GMT+5, -300 (60*5) minutes will be returned. Daylight savings prevent this value from being constant.
Parameter: This method does not accept any parameter.
Return Values: It returns a number representing the time difference between UTC and Local Time in minutes.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: The date of the month should lie in 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.
Program 2: In this example we will leave the new Date blank to get the time difference between UTC and local time by a trigger.
Note: The Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) is the time set by the World Time Standard. UTC is the same as GMT time.
