  • Last Updated : 19 Oct, 2021

Below is the example of Date getUTCMonth() 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 23:35:32 GMT+11:00');
 
   // Month from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMonth().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMonth();
 
   // Printing month according
   // to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

9

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

DateObj.getUTCMonth();

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch months.
Return Values: It returns the months for the given date object according to universal time. Months is an integer value ranging from 0 to 11. Zero (0) means January, 1 means February, and so on till 11 means December.
Note: In the above syntax, DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() conctructor from which we want to fetch month.
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. Month shall 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 a Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 33, 1996 23:35:32 GMT+11:00');
 
   // Month from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMonth().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMonth();
 
   // Printing month according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

NaN

Program 2: If month is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, then the getUTCMonth() method returns zero (0) according to universal time. It is an exception case. 
 

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = new Date('1996 23:35:32 GMT+11:00');
 
   // Month from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMonth().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMonth();
 
   // Printing month 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 getUTCMonth() method returns current month according to universal time. 
 

javascript




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

Output:
