  • Last Updated : 02 Jul, 2020

Below is the example of Date setUTCMinutes() method.

  • Example:




    <script>
       // Here a date has been assigned according to
       // universal time while creating Date object
       var dateobj = 
       new Date('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
       dateobj.setUTCMinutes(52);
      
       // New minute from above Date Object is
       // being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
       var B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
      
       // Printing new minute
       document.write(B);
    </script>
  • Output:
    52

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

Syntax:

DateObj.setUTCMinutes(Minutes_Value);

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.




<script>
   // Here minute has not been assigned according to
   // universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 GMT-3:00');
  
   // New minute of 51 is being set in above Date
   // Object with the help of setUTCMinutes() method
   dateobj.setUTCMinutes(51);
  
   // New minute from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
  
   // Printing new minute
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output:

51

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.




<script>
   // Here nothing has been assigned according to
   // universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = new Date();
  
   // New minute of 42 is being set in above Date
   // Object with the help of setUTCMinutes() method
   dateobj.setUTCMinutes(42);
  
   // Minutes from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
  
   // Month from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMonth()
   var C = dateobj.getUTCMonth();
  
   // Date from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCDate()
   var D = dateobj.getUTCDate();
  
   // Year from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCFullYear()
   var E = dateobj.getUTCFullYear();
   
   // Printing new minutes
   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
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 66-60=6, here 60 is substracted because 0 to 59 is 60.




<script>
   // Here date has been assigned according to
   // universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = 
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32 GMT-3:00');
  
   // New minute of 66 is being set in above Date
   // Object with the help of setUTCMinutes() method
   dateobj.setUTCMinutes(66);
  
   // Minute from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
   var B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
  
   // Hour from above Date Object is
   // being extracted using getUTCHours()
   var C = dateobj.getUTCHours();
  
   // Printing new minute
   document.write(B + "<br />");
  
   // Printing hour
   document.write(C);
</script>

Output:

6
6
