Date object and is used to get the minutes (0-59) for a given date object, in the UTC time zone. This can be useful for getting the minutes in a specific time zone, or for working with dates and times in a consistent time zone.
Here’s an example of how to use
getUTCMinutes() to get the current minutes in UTC time:
let date = new Date(); let minutes = date.getUTCMinutes(); console.log(minutes); // Outputs the current minutes in UTC time
You can also pass a date object as an argument to
getUTCMinutes() to get the minutes for a specific date in UTC time:
let date = new Date(2022, 0, 1, 11, 30, 0); // January 1, 2022 at 11:30:00 (local time) let minutes = date.getUTCMinutes(); console.log(minutes); // Outputs 30
Note that the
getUTCMinutes() method returns the minutes as a number between 0 and 59, with 0 representing no minutes and 59 representing 59 minutes.
In addition to getting the minutes, you can also use the
setUTCMinutes() method to set the minutes for a date object in UTC time. Here’s an example of how to use it:
let date = new Date(); date.setUTCMinutes(45); // Set the minutes to 45 console.log(date); // Outputs the current date and time with the minutes set to 45 in UTC time
