Date.prototype.setUTCMilliseconds()

The setUTCMilliseconds() method sets the milliseconds for a specified date according to universal time.

Parameters

millisecondsValue
A number between 0 and 999, representing the milliseconds.

Return value

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