setUTCMonth Redirect 1


The setUTCMonth() method sets the month for a specified date according to universal time.


dateObj.setUTCMonth(monthValue[, dayValue]) 


An integer between 0 and 11, representing the months January through December.
An integer from 1 to 31, representing the day of the month.


If you do not specify the dayValue parameter, the value returned from the getUTCDate() method is used.

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


Example: Using setUTCMonth

var theBigDay = new Date();
