The date.getUTCDate() method is used to fetch the date of a month according to universal time from a given Date object.

Syntax: 

DateObj.getUTCDate();

Parameter: This method does not accept any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch the date of the month according to universal time.

Return Values: It returns the date of the month for the given date object according to universal time. The date of the month is an integer value ranging from 1 to 31.

Below is an example of Date.getUTCDate() method. 

Example: 

javascript




<script>
    // If nothing is in parameter it takes
    // the current date while creating Date object
    var date = new Date();
     
    // Date of the month from above date object
    // is being extracted using getUTCDate().
    var getUTC = date.getUTCDate();
     
    //Printing on console
    console.log(getUTC);
</script>


Output: 

29

More codes for the above method are as follows:

Program 1: The date of the month should lie between 1 to 31 because none of the months have a date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because the date for the month does not exist. 

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating a Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32 GMT-11:00');
 
   // date of the month from above date object
   // is being extracted using getUTCDate().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCDate();
 
   // Printing date of the month.
   console.log(B);
</script>


Output: 

NaN

Program 2: If date of the month is not given then by default getUTCDate() function returns 1 according to universal time.It is an exception case. 

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according to
   // universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 1996 05:35:32 GMT-11:00');
 
   // date of the month from above date object is
   // extracted using getUTCDate().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCDate();
 
   // Printing date of the month.
   console.log(B);
</script>


Output: 

1
