JavaScript | date.getUTCMilliseconds() Function

The date.getUTCMilliseconds() is an inbuilt function in JavaScript which is used to fetch the millisecond according to universal time from a given Date object.

Syntax:

DateObj.getUTCMilliseconds();

In the above syntax, DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() conctructor from which we want to fetch millisecond accoding to universal time.

Parameter: This function does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch millisecond according to universal time.

Return Values: It returns the millisecond for the given date object according to universal time. Milliseconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 999.



Below program illustrate the getUTCMilliseconds() method:

// Here a date has been assigned according to universal
// time while creating Date object
var dateobj = new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32:77 GMT+11:00');
  
// millisecond from above date object is
// being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
  
// Printing millisecond according to universal time
console.log(B);

Output:

77

Errors and Exceptions:

  • Code #1: The date of the month should must lie in between 1 to 31 because none of the month have date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because date for the month does not exist. Millisecond will not be existed according to universal time if the date of the month does not exists.
    // Here a date has been assigned according to universal
    // time while creating Date object.
    var dateobj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32:77 GMT+11:00');
      
    // millisecond from above date object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
      
    // Printing millisecond according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    NaN
  • Code #2: If millisecond is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCMilliseconds() function returns zero (0) according to universal time.
    // 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+11:00');
      
    // millisecond from above date object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
      
    // Printing millisecond according 
    // to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    0
  • Code #3: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCMilliseconds() function returns current millisecond according to universal time.
    // creating Date object
    var dateobj = new Date();
      
    // millisecond from above date object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
      
    // Printing current millisecond
    // according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    566
  • Code #4: If millisecond outside the range [0,999] is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCMilliseconds() function return 0 as exception because milliseconds range is in between 0 to 999 and 1003 is out of this range.
    // Here a date has been assigned according to universal
    // time while creating Date object
    var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32:1003 GMT+11:00');
      
    // millisecond from above date object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
      
    // Printing millisecond 
    // according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    0

Application: It has many applications such as getting current millisecond. Below program shows one of the application of this function. It gives the current millisecond.

// creating Date object
var dateobj = new Date();
  
// millisecond from above date object is
// being extracted using getUTCMilliseconds().
var B = dateobj.getUTCMilliseconds();
  
// Printing current millisecond 
// according to universal time.
console.log(B);

Output:

566
