getUTCFullYear Method

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

function getUTCFullYear() : Number

Remarks

To get the year using local time, use the getFullYear method.

The getUTCFullYear method returns the year as an absolute number. This avoids the year 2000 problem where dates beginning with January 1, 2000 are confused with those beginning with January 1, 1900.

Example

The following example illustrates the use of the getUTCFullYear method.

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