setUTCDate Method
 Language Reference 
Version 3 

See Also                  Applies To


Description
Sets the numeric date in the Date object using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
Syntax
objDate.setUTCDate(numDate)

The numDate argument is a numeric value equal to the numeric date.

Remarks
To set the date using local time, use the setDate method.

If the value of numDate is greater than the number of days in the month stored in the Date object or is a negative number, the date is set to a date equal to numDate minus the number of days in the stored month. For example, if the stored date is January 5, 1996, and setUTCDate(32) is called, the date changes to February 1, 1996. Negative numbers have a similar behavior.

The following example illustrates the use of the setUTCDate method:

function SetUTCDateDemo(newdate)
{
  var d, s;
  d = new Date();
  d.setUTCDate(newdate);
  s = "Current setting is ";
  s += d.toUTCString(); 
  return(s);
}
