Below is the example of Date setUTCMinutes() method.
// Here a date has been assigned according to
// universal time while creating Date object
'October 13, 1996 05:35:32 GMT-3:00'
// New minute of 52 is being set in above Date
// Object with the help of setUTCMinutes() method
// New minute from above Date Object is
// being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
// Printing new minute
The date.setUTCMinutes() method is used to set minutes according to universal time into a date object which is created using the Date() constructor.
Parameter: This method accept a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:
- minutes_Value: This parameter holds the value of minutes which we want to set in the date created using the Date() constructor.
Return values: It returns the new i.e updated minute which is set by setUTCMinutes() method.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor in which we want to set the minute. Value of minute is from 0 to 59.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Example 1: If in Date() constructor we do not give any minute while creating the Date object, still setUTCMinutes() method will be able to set new minute according to universal time in the created Date object.
Example 2: If nothing as parameter is given in Date() constructor, still setUTCMinutes() method will be able set minute but month, year, date etc remains current ones.
Here 42 is the new minutes, 3 is the current month i.e April, 1 is the current date and 2018 is the current year.
42 3 1 2018
Example 3: If value of minute as 66 is given as the parameter of setUTCMinutes() method, it will set 6 as the minute because minute range is form 0 to 59 and hence , here 60 is substracted because 0 to 59 is 60.
