    Date.setFullYear Redirect 1

    Summary

    The setFullYear() method sets the full year for a specified date according to local time.

    Syntax

    dateObj.setFullYear(yearValue[, monthValue[, dayValue]]) 

    Parameters

    yearValue
    An integer specifying the numeric value of the year, for example, 1995.
    monthValue
    An integer between 0 and 11 representing the months January through December.
    dayValue
    An integer between 1 and 31 representing the day of the month. If you specify the dayValue parameter, you must also specify the monthValue.

    Description

    If you do not specify the monthValue and dayValue parameters, the values returned from the getMonth and getDate methods are used.

    If a parameter you specify is outside of the expected range, setFullYear attempts to update the other parameters and the date information in the Date object accordingly. For example, if you specify 15 for monthValue, the year is incremented by 1 (year + 1), and 3 is used for the month.

    Examples

    Example: Using setFullYear

    var theBigDay = new Date();
    theBigDay.setFullYear(1997);
