Given below is the syntax of setUTCFullYear() method.

Parameter Detail

  • yearValue − An integer specifying the numeric value of the year, for example, 2008.
  • monthValue − An integer between 0 and 11 representing the months January through December.
  • dayValue − An integer between 1 and 31 representing the day of the month. If you specify the dayValue parameter, you must also specify the monthValue.

If you do not specify the monthValue and dayValue parameters, the values returned from the getMonth and getDate methods are used. If a parameter you specify is outside of the expected range, setUTCFullYear attempts to update the other parameters and the date information in the Date object accordingly. For example, if you specify 15 for monthValue, the year is incremented by 1 (year + 1), and 3 is used for the month.
