Sets the seconds value in the Date object using Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
objDate.setUTCSeconds(numSeconds[, numMilli])

The setUTCSeconds method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
numSeconds Required. A numeric value equal to the seconds value.
numMilli Optional. A numeric value equal to the milliseconds value.

All set methods taking optional arguments use the value returned from corresponding get methods, if you do not specify an optional argument. For example, if the numMonth argument is optional, but not specified, JScript uses the value returned from the getMonth method.

To set the seconds value using local time, use the setSeconds method.

If the value of an argument is greater than its range or is a negative number, other stored values are modified accordingly. For example, if the stored date is "Jan 5, 1996 00:00:00.00" and setSeconds(150) is called, the date is changed to "Jan 5, 1996 00:02:30.00."

The following example illustrates the use of the setSeconds method:

function SetUTCSecondsDemo(nsec, nmsec)
  var d, s;
  var sep = ":";
  d = new Date();
  d.setUTCSeconds(nsec, nmsec);
  s = "Current setting is ";
  s += d.toUTCString() + sep + d.getUTCMilliseconds();
