O método Date.parse() analisa uma representação de data em string, e retorna o número de milisegundos desde 01 de Janeiro de 1970, 00:00:00 UTC.


Chamada direta:


Chamada implícita:

new Date(dateString)


Uma string de representação de datas no format RFC2822 ou ISO 8601 (outros formatos podem ser utilizados, mas os resultados podem não ser os esperados).


O método parse() analisa uma string de data (como "Dec 25, 1995") e retorna o número de milisegundos desde 01 de Janeiro de 1970, 00:00:00 UTC. Esta função é útil para definir valores de data baseados em valores de string, por exemplo em conjunto com o método setTime() e o objeto Date.

Given a string representing a time, parse() returns the time value. It accepts the RFC2822 / IETF date syntax (RFC2822 Section 3.3), e.g. "Mon, 25 Dec 1995 13:30:00 GMT". It understands the continental US time zone abbreviations, but for general use, use a time zone offset, for example, "Mon, 25 Dec 1995 13:30:00 +0430" (4 hours, 30 minutes east of the Greenwich meridian). If a time zone is not specified and the string is in an ISO format recognized by ES5, UTC is assumed. GMT and UTC are considered equivalent. The local time zone is used to interpret arguments in RFC2822 Section 3.3 format (or any format not recognized as ISO 8601 in ES5) that do not contain time zone information.

Suporte ao formato ECMAScript 5 ISO-8601

Astring Data e hora pode ser no formato ISO 8601. Por exemplo, "2011-10-10" (apenas data) ou "2011-10-10T14:48:00" (data e hora) podem ser passados ou convertidos. O fuso horario UTC é usado para interpretar  argumentos no formato ISO 8601 que não contenham informação de fuso horário (note que ECMAScript ed 6 draft especifica que  a string do tipo data e hora sem um fuso horário são tratados como data local, não UTC).

While time zone specifiers are used during date string parsing to interpret the argument, the value returned is always the number of milliseconds between January 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC and the point in time represented by the argument.

Because parse() is a static method of Date, it is called as Date.parse() rather than as a method of a Date instance.

Differences in assumed time zone

Given a date string of "March 7, 2014", parse() assumes a local time zone, but given an ISO format such as "2014-03-07" it will assume a time zone of UTC. Therefore Date objects produced using those strings will represent different moments in time unless the system is set with a local time zone of UTC. This means that two date strings that appear equivalent may result in two different values depending on the format of the string that is being converted (this behavior is changed in ECMAScript ed 6 so that both will be treated as local).

Fall-back to implementation-specific date formats

The ECMAScript specification states: If the String does not conform to the standard format the function may fall back to any implementation–specific heuristics or implementation–specific parsing algorithm. Unrecognizable strings or dates containing illegal element values in ISO formatted strings shall cause Date.parse() to return NaN.

However, invalid values in date strings not recognized as ISO format as defined by ES5 may or may not result in NaN, depending on the browser and values provided, e.g.:

// Non-ISO string with invalid date values
new Date('23/25/2014');

will be treated as a local date of 25 November, 2015 in Firefox 30 and an invalid date in Safari 7. However, if the string is recognized as an ISO format string and it contains invalid values, it will return NaN in all browsers compliant with ES5:

// ISO string with invalid values
new Date('2014-25-23').toISOString();
// returns "RangeError: invalid date" in all es5 compliant browsers

SpiderMonkey's implementation-specific heuristic can be found in jsdate.cpp. The string "10 06 2014" is an example of a non–conforming ISO format and thus falls back to a custom routine. See also this rough outline on how the parsing works.

new Date('10 06 2014');

will be treated as a local date of 6 October, 2014 and not 10 June, 2014. Other examples:

new Date('foo-bar 2014').toString();
// returns: "Invalid Date"

Date.parse('foo-bar 2014');
// returns: NaN


Example: Using Date.parse()

If IPOdate is an existing Date object, it can be set to August 9, 1995 (local time) as follows:

IPOdate.setTime(Date.parse('Aug 9, 1995'));

Some other examples of parsing non–standard date strings:

Date.parse('Aug 9, 1995');

Returns 807937200000 in time zone GMT-0300, and other values in other time zones, since the string does not specify a time zone and is not ISO format, therefore the time zone defaults to local.

Date.parse('Wed, 09 Aug 1995 00:00:00 GMT');

Returns 807926400000 no matter the local time zone as GMT (UTC) is provided.

Date.parse('Wed, 09 Aug 1995 00:00:00');

Returns 807937200000 in time zone GMT-0300, and other values in other time zones, since there is no time zone specifier in the argument and it is not ISO format, so is treated as local.

Date.parse('Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT');

Returns 0 no matter the local time zone as a time zone GMT (UTC) is provided.

Date.parse('Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00');

Returns 14400000 in time zone GMT-0400, and other values in other time zones, since no time zone is provided and the string is not in ISO format, therfore the local time zone is used.

Date.parse('Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT-0400');

Returns 14400000 no matter the local time zone as a time zone GMT (UTC) is provided.
