JavaScript Date Reference


Date Object

The Date object is used to work with dates and times.

Date objects are created with new Date().

There are four ways of instantiating a date:

var d = new Date();
var d = new Date(milliseconds);
var d = new Date(dateString);
var d = new Date(year, month, day, hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds);

For a tutorial about date and times, read our JavaScript Date Tutorial.
