// 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() function
dateobj.setUTCMinutes(52);
  
// new minute from above Date Object is
// being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
var B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
  
// Printing new minute
console.log(B);

/div>

Errors and Exceptions

  • Code #1: If in Date() constructor we do not give any minute while creating the Date object, still setUTCMinutes() function will be able to set new minute according to universal time in the created Date object.
    // 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() function
    dateobj.setUTCMinutes(51);
      
    // new minute from above Date Object is
    // being extracted using getUTCMinutes()
    var B = dateobj.getUTCMinutes();
      
    // Printing new minute
    console.log(B);

    Output:

    > 51
  • Code #2: If nothing as parameter is given in Date() constructor, still setUTCMinutes() function will be able set minute but month, year, date etc remains current ones.
    // 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() function
    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
    console.log(B);
      
    // Printing current month
    console.log(C);
      
    // Printing current date
    console.log(D);
      
    // Printing current year
    console.log(E);

    Output:

    > 42
    > 3
    > 1
    > 2018

    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.

  • Code #3: If value of minute as 66 is given as the parameter of setUTCMinutes() function, 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.
    // 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() function
    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
    console.log(B);
      
    // Printing hour
    console.log(C);

    Output:

    > 6
    > 6
