setUTCSeconds Method (Windows Scripting - JScript)

Updated: March 2009

Sets the seconds value in the Date object using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).

                      dateObj.setUTCSeconds(numSeconds[, numMilli])

dateObj

Required. Any Date object.

numSeconds

Required. A numeric value equal to the seconds value.

numMilli

Optional. A numeric value equal to the milliseconds value.

All set methods taking optional arguments use the value returned from corresponding get methods, if you do not specify an optional argument. For example, if the numMilli argument is not specified, JScript uses the value returned from the getUTCMilliseconds method.

To set the seconds value using local time, use the setSeconds method.

If the value of an argument is greater than its range or is a negative number, other stored values are modified accordingly. For example, if the stored date is "Jan 5, 1996 00:00:00.00" and setSeconds(150) is called, the date is changed to "Jan 5, 1996 00:02:30.00."

The setUTCHours method can be used to set the hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds.

The following example illustrates the use of the setUTCSeconds method.

function SetUTCSecondsDemo(nsec){
// Create Date object.
    var d = new Date();     
// Set UTC seconds.
    d.setUTCSeconds(nsec);  
    var s = "Current setting is ";
    s += d.toUTCString();
// Return new setting.
    return(s);              
}
