Below is the example of Date setUTCSeconds() 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 second of 52 is being set in above Date
// Object with the help of setUTCSeconds() method
// New second from above Date Object is
// being extracted using getUTCSeconds()
B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
// Printing new Second
The date.setUTCSeconds() method is used to set seconds according to universal time into a date object which is created using Date() constructor.
Parameter: This methods accept a single parameter as mentioned above anddescribed below:
- seconds_Value: This parameter holds the value of second which we want to set in the date created using the Date() constructor.
Return Values: It returns the new i.e updated second which is set by setUTCSeconds() method.
Note: The DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() constructor in which we want to set the second.Value of second is from 0 to 59.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: If in Date() constructor we do not give any second while creating the Date object, still setUTCSeconds() method will be able to set new second which is given as its parameter according to universal time in the created Date object.
Program 2: If nothing as parameter is given in Date() constructor, still setUTCSeconds() method will be able to set second but month, year, date etc remains current ones.
Here 42 is the new second, 3 is the current month i.e April, 1 is the current date and 2018 is the current year according to universal time.
42 3 1 2018
Program 3: If value of second 66 is given as the parameter of setSeconds() method, It will set 6 as the second because second range is form 0 to 59 and hence , here 60 is substracted because 0 to 59 is 60.
