Date.getDate() function in JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End Scripts

The Date object is a data type built into the JavaScript language. Date objects are created with the new Date( ) as shown below.

Once a Date object is created, a number of methods allow you to operate on it. Most methods simply allow you to get and set the year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and millisecond fields of the object, using either local time or UTC (universal, or GMT) time.

The getDate() function of the date object returns the day of the month of its current date.
