Sets the month value in the Date object using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
objDate.setUTCMonth(numMonth[, dateVal])

The setUTCMonth method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
numMonth Required. A numeric value equal to the month.
dateVal Optional. A numeric value representing the date. If not supplied, the value from a call to the getUTCDate method is used.

To set the month value using local time, use the setMonth method.

If the value of numMonth is greater than 11 (January is month 0) or is a negative number, the stored year is incremented or decremented appropriately. For example, if the stored date is "Jan 5, 1996 00:00:00.00", and setUTCMonth(14) is called, the date is changed to "Mar 5, 1997 00:00:00.00."

The following example illustrates the use of the setUTCMonth method:

function SetUTCMonthDemo(newmonth)
  var d, s;
  d = new Date();
  s = "Current setting is ";
  s += d.toUTCString();
