JavaScript Date getUTCMilliseconds() Method
  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2021

Below is the example of Date getUTCMilliseconds() method. 

  • 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
