JavaScript getMonth() Method

Definition and Usage

The getMonth() method returns the month, as a number.

Syntax

dateObject.getMonth()


Tips and Notes

Note: The value returned by getMonth() is a number between 0 and 11. January is 0, February is 1 and so on.
Note: This method is always used in conjunction with a Date object.

Example

In this example we get the current month and print it:

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

The output of the code above will be:

4


Example 2

Now we will create an array to get our example to write the name of the month, and not just a number:

<script type="text/javascript">
var d=new Date();
var month=new Array(12);
month[0]="January";
month[1]="February";
month[2]="March";
month[3]="April";
month[4]="May";
month[5]="June";
month[6]="July";
month[7]="August";
month[8]="September";
month[9]="October";
month[10]="November";
month[11]="December";
document.write("The month is " + month[d.getMonth()]);
</script>

The output of the code above will be:

The month is May
