Example :

Let’s learn the above methods with an example :

var date = new Date();

console.log(`Given date : ${date}`);

console.log(`getDate() : ${date.getDate()}`);

console.log(`getDay() : ${date.getDay()}`);

console.log(`getFullYear() : ${date.getFullYear()}`);

console.log(`getHours() : ${date.getHours()}`);

console.log(`getMilliseconds() : ${date.getMilliseconds()}`);

console.log(`getMinutes() : ${date.getMinutes()}`);

console.log(`getMonth() : ${date.getMonth()}`);

console.log(`getSeconds() : ${date.getSeconds()}`);

console.log(`getTime() : ${date.getTime()}`);

console.log(`getTimezoneOffset() : ${date.getTimezoneOffset()}`);

console.log(`getYear() : ${date.getYear()}`);

Output :

Given date : Thu Sep 26 2019 19:23:09 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)
getDate() : 26
getDay() : 4
getFullYear() : 2019
getHours() : 19
getMilliseconds() : 920
getMinutes() : 23
getMonth() : 8
getSeconds() : 9
getTime() : 1569505989920
getTimezoneOffset() : 300
getYear() : 119

console.log(`getUTCFullYear() : ${date.getUTCFullYear()}`);

console.log(`getUTCHours() : ${date.getUTCHours()}`);

console.log(`getUTCMilliseconds() : ${date.getUTCMilliseconds()}`);
