setMinutes Method (Windows Scripting - JScript)

Updated: March 2009

Sets the minutes value in the Date object using local time.

                      dateObj.setMinutes(numMinutes[, numSeconds[, numMilli]])

dateObj

Required. Any Date object.

numMinutes

Required. A numeric value equal to the minutes value. Must be supplied if either of the following arguments is used.

numSeconds

Optional. A numeric value equal to the seconds value. Must be supplied if the numMilli argument is used.

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 numSeconds argument not specified, JScript uses the value returned from the getSeconds method.

To set the minutes value using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), use the setUTCMinutes 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" and setMinutes(90) is called, the date is changed to "Jan 5, 1996 01:30:00." Negative numbers have a similar behavior.

The following example illustrates the use of the setMinutes method.

function SetMinutesDemo(nmin, nsec){
   var d, s;                     // Declare variables.
   d = new Date();               // Create Date object.
   d.setMinutes(nmin, nsec);     // Set minutes.
   s = "Current setting is " + d.toLocaleString() 
   return(s);                    // Return new setting.
}
