The date.setUTCMilliseconds() method is used to set milliseconds according to universal time into a date object which is created using Date() constructor.

Syntax:

DateObj.setUTCMilliseconds(milliseconds_Value);

Parameter: This method accept 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 setUTCMilliseconds() method.



Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor in which we want to set the millisecond according to universal time. 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 millisecond while creating the Date object, still setUTCMilliseconds() method will be able to set new millisecond which is given as its parameter in the created Date object.

   // Here millisecond has not been assigned according

   var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 GMT-3:00');
  
   // New millisecond of 51 is being set in above Date
   // Object with the help of setUTCMilliseconds() method
   dateobj.setUTCMilliseconds(51);
  
   // New millisecond from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds()
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
  
   // Printing new millisecond
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output:

51

Program 2: If nothing as a parameter is given in Date() constructor, still setUTCMilliseconds() method will be able to set millisecond but a month, year, date, etc remains current ones according to universal time.
Here 42 is the new milliseconds, 3 is the current month i.e April, 1 is the current date and 2018 is the current year according to universal time.

   // Month from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMonth()
   var C = dateobj.getUTCMonth();
  
   // Date from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getDate()
   var D = dateobj.getUTCDate();
  
   // Year from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCFullYear()
   var E = dateobj.getUTCFullYear();
  
   // 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

2018

Program 3: If value of millisecond 1006 is given as the parameter of setUTCMilliseconds() method, It will set 6 as the millisecond because millisecond range is form 0 to 999 and hence 1006-1000=6, here 1000 is substracted because 0 to 999 is 1000.
