Synopsis

date.setYear(year)

Arguments

year

An integer that is set as the year value (in local time) for the Date object date. If this value is between 0 and 99, inclusive, 1900 is added to it and it is treated as a year between 1900 and 1999.

Returns

The millisecond representation of the adjusted date. Prior to ECMAScript standardization, this method returns nothing.

Description

setYear() sets the year field of a specified Date object, with special behavior for years between 1900 and 1999.

As of ECMAScript v3, this function is no longer required in conforming JavaScript implementations; use setFullYear() instead.
