JavaScript Date setMilliseconds() Method

  • Last Updated : 26 Oct, 2021

Below is the example of Date setMilliseconds() method.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course. Now at it's lowest price ever!

  • Example:




    <script>
       // Here a date has been assigned
       // while creating Date object
       var dateobj = 
       new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32:77');
      
       // New millisecond of 52 is being set in above Date
       // Object with the help of setMilliseconds() method
       dateobj.setMilliseconds(52);
      
       // New millisecond from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getMilliseconds()
       var B = dateobj.getMilliseconds();
      
       // Printing new millisecond
       document.write(B);
    </script>
  • Output:
    52

The date.setMilliseconds() method is used to set milliseconds into a date object which are created using date() constructor.

Syntax:

dateObj.setMilliseconds(milliseconds_Value);

Parameter: This method accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:



  • milliseconds_Value: This parameter holds the value of millisecond which is used to set in date() constructor.

    Return Values: It returns the new i.e updated millisecond which is set by setMilliseconds() method.

    Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor in which we want to set the millisecond. Value of millisecond is from 0 to 999.

    More codes for the above method are as follows:

    Program 1: If in Date() constructor we do not give any millisecond, still setMilliseconds() method set new millisecond which is given as its parameter.




    <script>
       // Here millisecond has not been assigned
       // while creating Date object
       var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996');
      
       // New millisecond of 51 is being set in above Date
       // Object with the help of setMilliseconds() method
       dateobj.setMilliseconds(51);
      
       // New millisecond from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getMilliseconds()
       var B = dateobj.getMilliseconds();
      
       // Printing new millisecond
       document.write(B);
    </script>

    Output:

    51

    Program 2: If nothing as parameter is given in Date() constructor, still setMilliseconds() method set millisecond but month, year, date etc become current ones. Here 42 is the new milliseconds, 4 is the current month i.e April, 1 is the current date and 2018 is the current year.




    <script>
       // Here nothing has been assigned
       // while creating Date object
       var dateobj = new Date();
      
       // new millisecond of 42 is being set in 
       // above Date Object with the help of 
       // setMilliseconds() method
       dateobj.setMilliseconds(42);
      
       // Milliseconds from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getMilliseconds()
       var B = dateobj.getMilliseconds();
      
       // Month from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getMonth()
       var C = dateobj.getMonth();
      
       // Date from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getDate()
       var D = dateobj.getDate();
      
       // Year from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getFullYear()
       var E = dateobj.getFullYear();
      
       // Printing new milliseconds
       document.write(B + "<br />");
      
    // Printing current month
    document.write(C + "<br />");
      
    // Printing current date
    document.write(D + "<br />");
      
    // Printing current year
    document.write(E);
    </script>

    Output:

    42
    4
    1
    2018

    Example 3: If value of millisecond 1006 is given as the parameter of setMilliseconds() method, It will set 6 as the millisecond because millisecond range is from 0 to 999 and hence 1006-1000=6, here 1000 is substracted because 0 to 999 is 1000.
    Here 6 is the new millisecond and second becomes 33 from 32 because the millisecond range is from 0 to 999 i.e, total 1000 and we set new millisecond as 1006 which increases second by one to 33 from 32 and millisecond becomes 6.




    <script>
       // Here date has been assigned
       // while creating Date object
       var dateobj = 
       new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32:45');
      
       // new millisecond of 1006 is being set 
       // in above Date Object with the help of 
       // setMilliseconds() method
       dateobj.setMilliseconds(1006);
      
       // milliseconds from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getMilliseconds()
       var B = dateobj.getMilliseconds();
      
       // Second from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getSeconds()
       var C = dateobj.getSeconds();
      
       // Printing new Milliseconds
       document.write(B + "<br />");
      
       // Printing second
       document.write(C);
    </script>

    Output:

    6
    33
