JavaScript getHours() Method

Definition and Usage

The getHours() method returns the hour of a time.

Syntax

dateObject.getHours()


Tips and Notes

Note: The value returned by getHours() is a two digit number. However, the return value is not always two digits, if the value is less than 10 it only returns one digit.
Note: This method is always used in conjunction with a Date object.

Example

In this example we get the hour of the current time:

<script type="text/javascript">
var d = new Date();
document.write(d.getHours());
</script>

The output of the code above will be:

20


Example 2

Here we will extract the hour from the specific date and time:

<script type="text/javascript">
var born = new Date("July 21, 1983 01:15:00");
document.write(born.getHours());
</script>

The output of the code above will be:
