Below is the example of Date setFullYear() method.
// Here a date has been assigned
// while creating Date object
'October 13, 1996 05:35:32'
// New year 1992 is being set in above Date
// Object with the help of setFullYear() method
// New year from above Date Object is
// being extracted using getFullYear()
B = dateobj.getFullYear();
// Printing new year
The date.setFullYear() method is used to set year into a date object which is created using Date() constructor.
Parameter: This method accept a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:
- year_Value: This parameter holds the value of year which is used to set in Date() constructor.
Return Value: It returns the new date with updated year which is set by setFullYear() method.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor in which we want to set the year.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: If in Date() constructor we do not give any year, still setFullYear() method set new year which is given as its parameter.
Program 2: If nothing as parameter is given in Date() constructor, still setFullYear() method set year but month and date become current ones. Here in output 2 is the month of March because month name start from 0 to 11 i.e, 0 for January and 11 for December and 30 is the current date.
