Date() Constructor

The Date() constructor returns a new¬†Date¬†object that represents the current date and time. Let’s have a look at some methods of the Date object:

Method Description
getFullYear() Year as a four digit number (yyyy)
getMonth() Month as a number (0-11)
getDate() Day as a number (1-31)
getHours() Hour (0-23)
getMinutes() Minute (0-59)
getSeconds() Second (0-59)
getMilliseconds() Millisecond (0-999)
getTime() The time (milliseconds since January 1, 1970)
getDay() Weekday as a number (0-6)

Example

Have a look at an example:

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <p>Current Date & Time: {{currentDateTime()}}</p>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  methods: {
    currentDateTime() {
      const current = new Date();
      const date = current.getFullYear()+'-'+(current.getMonth()+1)+'-'+current.getDate();
      const time = current.getHours() + ":" + current.getMinutes() + ":" + current.getSeconds();
      const dateTime = date +' '+ time;

      return dateTime;
    }
  }
};
</script>
That’s it. Thanks for reading. ?
