Below is the example of Date getMilliseconds() method. 

  • Example:

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32:77');
 
  // millisecond from above date object is
  // being extracted using getMilliseconds().
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
  // Printing millisecond
  document.write(millisec);
</script>


  • Output:
77

The date.getMilliseconds() method is used to fetch the milliseconds from a given Date object.
Syntax:  

DateObj.getMilliseconds()

Parameter: This function does not accept any parameter. 
Return values: It returns the millisecond for the given date object. Milliseconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 999.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: The date of the month should must lie in between 1 to 31 because none of the month have date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because date for the month does not exist. 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32:77');
 
  // millisecond from above dateobject is
  // being extracted using getMilliseconds().
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
  // Printing millisecond
  document.write(millisec);
</script>


Output:  

NaN

Program 2: If millisecond is not given, it returns zero (0). 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32');
 
  // millisecond from above dateobject is being
  // extracted using getMilliseconds()
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
  // Printing millisecond
  document.write(millisec);
</script>


Output:  

0

Example 3: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date() constructor, it returns current millisecond. 

javascript




<script>
  // Creating a Date Object
  var DateObj = new Date();
 
  // millisecond from above Date object is being
  // extracted using getMilliSeconds()
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
  // Printing current millisecond
  document.write(millisec);
</script>


Output:  

279

Example 4: If millisecond as 1003 is given while creating the Date object, the function will return 0 as exception because milliseconds range is in between 0 to 999 and 1003 is out of this range. 

javascript




<script>
  // Here a date has been assigned
  // while creating Date object
  var DateObj = new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:32:1003');
 
  // millisecond from above dateobject is being
  // extracted using getMilliseconds()
  var millisec = DateObj.getMilliseconds();
 
  // Printing millisecond
  document.write(millisec);
</script>


Output:  

0
