    Re: Date Object In Javascript

    The object Date can work with all variables affecting dates and time management. It is an object included natively in JavaScript, and that we can always use. The date is stored in a variable as a string that contains the day, month, year, hour, minutes and seconds. It is therefore difficult access to only one element of an object dateSince each element can have a variable size. Fortunately, the methods of the object Date provide a simple way to access a single item, or to modify it. Their syntax is as follows:
    Code:
    Objet_Date.Methode ()

    Re: Date Object In Javascript

    The syntax for creating an object-date may be one of the following:
    • First = new Date ()
      This syntax is used to store the date and time current
    • Second = new Date ( "month day, year hours: minutes: seconds)
      parameters are a string in this notation
    • Third = new Date (year, month, day)
      parameters are three integers separated by commas.
      Omitted parameters are set to zero by default
    • Fourth = new Date (year, month, day, hours, minutes, seconds)
      parameters are six integers separated by commas.
      Omitted parameters are set to zero by default

    If you want to change the Date object format in your output then you must need to make use of the mehod below:
    • toGMTString ()
    • toLocaleString ()

    If you want to change the Date which is already exist in the database then yo must need to make use of the mehod below:
    • setDate (<DATE>)
    • setDay (<DATE>)
    • setHours (<DATE>)
    • setMinutes (<DATE>)
    • setMonth (<DATE>)
    • setTime (<DATE>)

    Re: Date Object In Javascript

    If you make use of the date object in the javascript then it will work with the date and time. If you want to create the date object then simply create a Date() constructor as below:
    Code:
    <h2>It is now  
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    var currT = new Date()
    var mon = currT.getMonth() + 1
    var day = currT.getDate()
    var yer = currT.getFullYear()
    document.write(month + "/" + day + "/" + year)
    //-->
    </script>
    </h2>
