Below is the example of Date now() method.
// Use of method Date.now()
A = Date.now();
// Printing the number of millisecond elapsed
"The time elapsed in millisecond is: "
The time elapsed in millisecond is: 1529644667834
The date.now() method is used to returns the number of milliseconds elapsed since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 UTC. Since now() is a static method of Date, it will always be used as Date.now().
var A = Date.now();
Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter.
Return Values: It returns the number of milliseconds elapsed since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 UTC.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: To get the current date, use the code below.
The current date is: Fri Jun 22 2018 10:54:33 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time)
Program 2: The Date(Date.now()) is same as Date(), so the same result can be achieved i.e, current date using the following code.
The current date is: Fri Jun 22 2018 11:02:01 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time)
