JavaScript | date.getUTCSeconds() Function

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

Syntax:

DateObj.getUTCSeconds();

In the above syntax, DateObj is a valid Date object created using Date() conctructor from which we want to fetch second according 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 day of the week.

Return Values: It returns the second for the given date object according to universal time. Seconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 59.



Below program illustrate the getUTCSeconds() method:

// Here a date has been assigned accoding to universal
// time while creating Date object
var dateobj = new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32 UTC');
  
// second from above date object is
// being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
  
// Printing second according 
// to universal time.
console.log(B);

Output:

32

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. Second will not be existed according to universal time if the date of the month does not exists.
    // Here a date has been assigned accoding to universal
    // time while creating Date object
    var dateobj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32 UTC');
      
    // second from above data object is
    // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
      
    // Printing second according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    NaN
  • Code #2: If second is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() function returns zero (0) according to universal time.
    // Here a date has been assigned accoding to universal
    // time while creating Date object
    var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35 UTC');
      
    // second from above data object is
    // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
      
    // Printing second 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 getUTCSeconds() function returns current second according to universal time.
    // Here nothing has been assigned accoding to universal
    // time while creating Date object
    var dateobj = new Date();
      
    // second from above date object is
    // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
      
    // Printing current second 
    // according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    41
  • Code #4: If second outside the range [0,59] is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() function return 0 as exception because seconds range is in between 0 to 59 and 88 is out of this range.
    // Here a date has been assigned accoding to universal
    // time while creating Date object
    var dateobj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:88 UTC');
      
    // second from above date object is
    // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
    var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
      
    // Printing second according to universal time.
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    0

Application: It has many applications such as getting current second accoding to universal time. Below program shows one of the application of this function. It gives the current second.

// Here nothing has been assigned accoding to universal
// time while creating Date object
var dateobj = new Date();
  
// second from above date object is
// being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
  
// Printing current second 
// according to universal time.
console.log(B);

Output:

41
