    Date.prototype.setSeconds()

    Summary

    The setSeconds() method sets the seconds for a specified date according to local time.

    Syntax

    dateObj.setSeconds(secondsValue[, msValue])

    Versions prior to JavaScript 1.3

    dateObj.setSeconds(secondsValue)

    Parameters

    secondsValue
    An integer between 0 and 59, representing the seconds.
    msValue
    Optional. A number between 0 and 999, representing the milliseconds.

    Description

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

    If a parameter you specify is outside of the expected range, setSeconds() attempts to update the date information in the Date object accordingly. For example, if you use 100 for secondsValue, the minutes stored in the Date object will be incremented by 1, and 40 will be used for seconds.

    Examples

    Example: Using setSeconds()

    var theBigDay = new Date();
    theBigDay.setSeconds(30);
