toTimeString() method returns the time portion of a
Date object in human readable form in English.
A string representing the time portion of the given date in human readable form in English.
Date instances refer to a specific point in time. Calling
toString() will return the date formatted in
a human readable form in English. In SpiderMonkey, this consists of
the date portion (day, month, and year) followed by the time portion (hours, minutes,
seconds, and time zone). Sometimes it is desirable to obtain a string of the time
portion; such a thing can be accomplished with the
toTimeString() method is especially useful because compliant engines
implementing ECMA-262 may
differ in the string obtained from
Date objects, as the format is implementation-dependent; simple string
slicing approaches may not produce consistent results across multiple engines.
var d = new Date(1993, 6, 28, 14, 39, 7); console.log(d.toString()); // Wed Jul 28 1993 14:39:07 GMT-0600 (PDT) console.log(d.toTimeString()); // 14:39:07 GMT-0600 (PDT)
