Get year of date in JavaScript

How to return the year of the date in JavaScript?


By using getFullYear() we can return the year.

<p>Click the below button to get present year.</p>
<input type="button" value="Click" onclick="myDate()" />
<p id="myId"></p>

<script>
    function myDate() {
        var a = new Date();
        var r = a.getFullYear();
        document.getElementById("myId").innerHTML = r;
    }
</script>

In the above code snippet we have given Id as "myId"to the second <p> element in the HTML code. There is a function myDate() in the<script>block which is connected to the Onclick of the HTML button. The document.getElementById("myId")returns the element that has Id "id=myID" in the HTML page. We need to return the year, for that we are using getFullYear(). Onclick of the button "Click" fires the function myDate() in the <script> block at the same time getFullYear() returns the year as output.
