  • Last Updated : 29 Jun, 2020

Below is the example of Date getUTCFullYear() method.

  • Example:




    <script>
       // Here a date has been assigned according
       // to universal time while creating Date object
       var dateobj = 
       new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32 GMT+11:00');
      
       // year from above date object is
       // being extracted using getUTCFullYear().
       var B = dateobj.getUTCFullYear();
      
       // Printing year according to universal time.
       document.write(B);                    
    </script>
  • Output:
    1996

    The date.getUTCFullYear() method is used to fetch the year according to universal time from a given Date object.

    Syntax:

    DateObj.getUTCFullYear();

    Parameter: This method does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch year according to universal time.

    Return Values: It returns the year for the given date object DateObj according to universal time.



    Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor from which we want to fetch year according to universal time.

    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. If the date for the month does not exist, the year will also not be existed.




    <script>
       // Here a date has been assigned according
       // to universal time while creating Date object
       var dateobj = 
       new Date('October 45, 1996 05:35:32 GMT+11:00');
      
       // Year from above date object is
       // being extracted using getUTCFullYear().
       var B = dateobj.getUTCFullYear();
      
       // Printing year according to universal time.
       document.write(B);
    </script>

    Output:

    NaN

    Program 2: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date() constructor, the getUTCFullYear() function returns the current year according to universal time.




    <script>
       // Creating Date object
       var dateobj = new Date();
      
       // Year from above date object is
       // being extracted using getUTCFullYear().
       var B = dateobj.getUTCFullYear();
      
       // Printing current year 
       // according to universal time.
       document.write(B);
    </script>

    Output:

    2018
