  • Last Updated : 19 Oct, 2021

Below is the example of Date getUTCMilliseconds() method. 

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 according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32:77 GMT+11:00');
 
   // millisecond from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
 
   // Printing millisecond according
   // to universal time
   document.write(B);
</script>
  • Output: 
77

The date.getUTCMilliseconds() method is used to fetch the millisecond according to universal time from a given Date object.
Syntax: 

DateObj.getUTCMilliseconds();

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

Return Values: It returns the millisecond for the given date object according to universal time. Milliseconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 999.



Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor from which we want to fetch millisecond 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. Millisecond will not be existed according to universal time if the date of the month does not exist. 

Javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object.
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32:77 GMT+11:00');
 
   // millisecond from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
 
   // Printing millisecond according
   // to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 

NaN

Program 2: If millisecond is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCMilliseconds() method returns zero (0) according to universal time. 

Javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32 GMT+11:00');
 
   // millisecond from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
 
   // Printing millisecond according
   // to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 

0

Program 3: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCMilliseconds() method returns current millisecond according to universal time. 

Javascript




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

Output: 

566

Program 4: If millisecond outside the range [0,999] is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCMilliseconds() method return 0 as exception because milliseconds range is in between 0 to 999 and 1003 is out of this range. 

Javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32:1003 GMT+11:00');
 
   // millisecond from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
 
   // Printing millisecond
   // according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 

0
