Format #10: GMT Time

Each of the methods discussed so far calculates time on the client-side (browser). JavaScript also supplies us, similar methods for finding the GMT (called the Universal Coordinated Time or UTC).

  • getUTCDate(): Date
  • getUTCMonth(): Month
  • getUTCFullYear(): Year (4 digit)
  • getUTCDay(): Day
  • getUTCHours(): Hours
  • getUTCMinutes(): Minutes
  • getUTCSeconds(): Seconds
  • getUTCMilliseconds(): Milliseconds

You can use these methods to find the GMT and format it based on scripts discussed before.
