Below is the example of Date getMonth() method. 
 

  • Example: 
     

javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32');
 
   // Month from above Date Object is
   // Being extracted using getMonth()
   var months = DateObj.getMonth();
 
   // Printing month.
   document.write(months);
</script>


  • Output: 
     
9

The date.getMonth() method is used to fetch the month(0 to 11) from given Date object.
Syntax: 
 

DateObj.getMonth()

Parameter: This function does not accept any parameter. 
Return Value: It returns the Month for the given Date object. The month is an integer value ranging from 0 to 11. Zero (0) means January, 1 means February, and so on till 11 means December.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: Here the date of the month should lie in between 1 to 31 because no date can have month greater than 31. That is why it returns NaN i.e, Not a Number if the month in the Date object is greater than 31. 
 

javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32');
 
   // Month from above Date Object is being
   // Extracted using getMonth()
   var months = DateObj.getMonth();
 
   // Printing month.
   document.write(months);
</script>


Output: 
 

NaN

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

javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date('1996 05:35:32');
 
   // Month from above Date Object is being
   // Extracted using getMonth()
   var months = DateObj.getMonth();
 
   // Printing month.
   document.write(months);
</script>


Output: 
 

0

   // Creating a Date Object
   var DateObj = new Date();
 
   // Month from above Date Object is being
