JavaScript | date.getUTCMinutes() Function

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

Syntax:

DateObj.getUTCMinutes();

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

Parameters: This function does not takes any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch minutes.

Return Values: It return the minutes for the given date according to universal time. Minutes is an interger value ranging from 0 to 59.



Below program illustrate the getUTCMinutes() method:

// Here a date has been assigned according to universal
// time while creating Date object
var dataobj = new Date('October 15, 1996 23:35:32 GMT+11:00');
  
// Minute from above date object is
// being extracted using getUTCMinutes().
var B = dataobj.getUTCMinutes();
  
// Printing minute according to universal time
console.log(B);

Output:

35

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. Minutes 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 dataobj = new Date('October 33, 1996 23:35:32 GMT+11:00');
      
    // Minute from above data object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMinutes().
    var B = dataobj.getUTCMinutes();
      
    // Printing minute according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    NaN
  • Code #2: If minutes is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, then getUTCMinutes() function returns zero (0) according to universal time.It is an exception case.
    // Here a date has been assigned according to universal
    // time while creating Date object.
    var dataobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 GMT+11:00');
      
    // Minute from above data object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMinutes().
    var B = dataobj.getUTCMinutes();
      
    // Printing minute 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 getUTCMinutes() function returns current minutes according to universal time.
    // Here nothing has been assigned according to universal
    // time while creating Date object.
    var dataobj = new Date();
      
    // Minute from above data object is 
    // being extracted using getUTCMinutes().
    var B = dataobj.getUTCMinutes();
