    Date.prototype.toISOString()

    Summary

    The toISOString() method returns a string in simplified extended ISO format (ISO 8601), which is always 24 characters long: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.sssZ. The timezone is always zero UTC offset, as denoted by the suffix "Z".

    Syntax

    dateObj.toISOString()

    Examples

    Example: Using toISOString()

    var today = new Date('05 October 2011 14:48 UTC');
    
    console.log(today.toISOString()); // Returns 2011-10-05T14:48:00.000Z
    

    The above example uses parsing of a non–standard string value that may not be correctly parsed in non–Mozilla browsers.

    Polyfill

    This method was standardized in ECMA-262 5th edition. Engines which have not been updated to support this method can work around the absence of this method using the following shim:

    if (!Date.prototype.toISOString) {
      (function() {
    
        function pad(number) {
          if (number < 10) {
            return '0' + number;
          }
          return number;
        }
    
        Date.prototype.toISOString = function() {
          return this.getUTCFullYear() +
            '-' + pad(this.getUTCMonth() + 1) +
            '-' + pad(this.getUTCDate()) +
            'T' + pad(this.getUTCHours()) +
            ':' + pad(this.getUTCMinutes()) +
            ':' + pad(this.getUTCSeconds()) +
            '.' + (this.getUTCMilliseconds() / 1000).toFixed(3).slice(2, 5) +
            'Z';
        };
    
      }());
    }
