The [@@toPrimitive]() method converts a Date object to a primitive value.

Syntax

Date()[Symbol.toPrimitive](hint);

Return value

The primitive value of the given Date object. Depending on the argument, the method can return either a string or a number.

Description

The [@@toPrimitive]() method of the Date object returns a primitive value, that is either of type number or of type string.

If hint is "string" or "default", [@@toPrimitive]() tries to call the toString method. If the toString property does not exist, it tries to call the valueOf method and if the valueOf does not exist either, [@@toPrimitive]() throws a TypeError.

If hint is "number", [@@toPrimitive]() first tries to call valueOf, and if that fails, it calls toString.

JavaScript calls the [@@toPrimitive]() method to convert an object to a primitive value. You rarely need to invoke the [@@toPrimitive]() method yourself; JavaScript automatically invokes it when encountering an object where a primitive value is expected.
