Below is the example of Date getUTCHours() method.
// Here a date has been assigned according
// to universal time while creating Date object
'October 15, 1996 23:35:32 GMT+11:00'
// hour from above date object is being
// extracted using getUTCHours().
B = dateobj.getUTCHours();
// Printing hour according to universal time.
The date.getUTCHours() method is used to fetch the hours according to universal time from a given Date object.
Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch hours according to universal time.
Return Values: It returns the hours for the given date object according to universal time. Hours is an integer value ranging from 0 to 23.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() conctructor from which we want to fetch hours 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. Hours will not be existed according to universal time if the date of the month does not exist.
Program 2: If hours is not given while creating Date object, the getUTCHours() method returns zero (0) but output is printed as 13 because according to universal time 0 is represented as 13. It is an exception case.
Program 3: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date() constructor while creating Date object, the getUTCHours() method returns current hour according to universal time.
