Below is the example of Date setHours() method.
// Here a date has been assigned
// while creating Date object
'October 13, 1996 05:35:32'
// New hour 11 is being set in above Date
// Object with the help of setHours() method
// New hour from above Date Object is
// being extracted using getHours()
B = dateobj.getHours();
// Printing new hour
The date.setHours() method is used to set hours into a date object which is created using the Date() constructor.
Parameter: This method accept a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:
- hours_Value: This parameters holds the value of hour which is used to set in Date() constructor.
Return Value: It returns the new date with updated hour which is set by setHours() method.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor in which we want to set the hours.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: If in Date() constructor we do not give hour while creating the Date object, still setHours() method will set the new hour which is given as its parameter.
Example 2: If nothing as a parameter is given in the Date() constructor, still setHours() method set hour but a month, year and date will be a current month, year, and date. Here 11 is the new hour, 2 is the current month i.e March, 30 is the current date and 2018 is the current year.
11 2 30 2018
Example 3: If value of hour as 26 is given in the parameter of setHours() method, It will set 2 as the hour because hour range is form 0 to 23 and .
Here 2 is the new hour, 9 is the month i.e October, 14 is the date and year is 1996. Here as we see that 13 was the original date but output becomes 14 because 26 hours given as the parameter of the method converted to 2 hours of next day that is why date incremented by 1 i.e, from 13 to 14.
