JavaScript Date getUTCSeconds() Method
  • Last Updated : 30 Jun, 2020

Below is the example of Date getUTCSeconds() 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 UTC');
      
       // Second from above date object is
       // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
       var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
      
       // Printing second according 
       // to universal time.
       document.write(B);
    </script>

    
    

  • Output:
    32

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

Syntax:

DateObj.getUTCSeconds();

Parameter: This method does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch the day of the week.

Return Values: It returns the second for the given date object according to universal time. Seconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 59.



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




<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 UTC');
  
   // Second from above data object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
  
   // Printing second according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>


Output:

NaN

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




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according 
   // to universal  time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = 
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35 UTC');
  
   // Second from above data object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
  
   // Printing second 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 getUTCSeconds() method returns current second according to universal time.




<script>
   // Here nothing has been assigned according 
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = new Date();
  
   // Second from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
  
   // Printing current second 
   // according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>


Output:

41

Program 4: If second outside the range [0,59] is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method return 0 as exception because seconds range is in between 0 to 59 and 88 is out of this range.




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according 
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =  
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:88 UTC');
  
   // Second from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
  
   // Printing second according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>


Output:

0
