getDate Method (JavaScript)

Returns the day-of-the-month value in a Date object using local time.

dateObj.getDate() 

The required dateObj reference is a Date object.

To get the day-of-the-month value using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), use the getUTCDate method.

The return value is an integer between 1 and 31 that represents the day-of-the-month value in the Date object.

The following example illustrates the use of the getDate method.

function DateDemo(){
   var d;
   var s = "Today's date is: ";
   d = new Date();
   s += (d.getMonth() + 1) + "/";
   s += d.getDate() + "/";
   s += d.getFullYear();
   return(s);
}
