getMilliseconds Method (Date)

getMilliseconds Method (Date) (JavaScript)

Gets the milliseconds of a Date, using local time.

dateObj.getMilliseconds() 

The required dateObj reference is a Date object.

Returns the milliseconds of a date. The value can range from 0-999. If a date has been constructed without specifying the milliseconds, the value returned is 0.

To get the number of milliseconds in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), use the getUTCMilliseconds method.

The following example shows how to use the getMilliseconds method.

var date = new Date("1/1/2001");
document.write(date.getMilliseconds());
document.write("<br/>");

date.setMilliseconds(5);
document.write(date.getMilliseconds());
// Output: 
// 0
// 5
