getUTCMonth Method

Returns the month value in a Date object using Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

function getUTCMonth(): Number


To get the month in local time, use the getMonth method.

The getUTCMonth method returns an integer between 0 and 11 indicating the month value in the Date object. The integer returned is not the traditional number used to indicate the month. It is one less. If "Jan 5, 1996 08:47:00.0" is stored in a Date object, getUTCMonth returns 0.


The following example illustrates the use of the getUTCMonth method.

function UTCDateDemo(){
   var d, s = "Today's UTC date is: ";
   d = new Date();
   s += (d.getUTCMonth() + 1) + "/";
   s += d.getUTCDate() + "/";
   s += d.getUTCFullYear();
