SetUTCFullYear() Method in JavaScript

How to set the year of a date object according to UTC time in JavaScript?


By using setFullYear() method we can set the year of a date object according to UTC time.

<p>Click the below button to set the year of a date object, according to UTC time.</p>
<input type="button" value="Click" onclick="myDate()" />
<p id="myId"></p>

<script>
    function myDate() {
        var a = new Date();
        a.setUTCFullYear(2010);
        document.getElementById("myId").innerHTML = a;
    }
</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 set the year of a date object accordint to UTC time, for that we are using setUTCFullYear() method and we have given value "2010" to this method, so in the output setUTCFullYear() returns the year as 2010. Onclick of the button "Click" in the HTML code fires the function myDate() in the <script> block, at the same time setFullYear() method set the year of a date object according to UTC time as per the given value (2010) and gives the output.
