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

Syntax

dateObj.setUTCDate(dayValue)

Parameters

dayValue
An integer from 1 to 31, representing the day of the month.

Return value

The number of milliseconds between 1 January 1970 00:00:00 UTC and the updated date.

Description

If a parameter you specify is outside of the expected range, setUTCDate() attempts to update the date information in the Date object accordingly. For example, if you use 40 for dayValue, and the month stored in the Date object is June, the day will be changed to 10 and the month will be incremented to July.

Examples

Using setUTCDate()

var theBigDay = new Date();
theBigDay.setUTCDate(20);
