JavaScript Date setSeconds() method

setSeconds() method is a Date class method, it is used to set the seconds to the Date object with a valid second value (between 00 to 59).

Note: Seconds value larger than the 59 will be truncated from the starting seconds value (00), for example, we are going to set 61 as a second value, it will be truncated as 1.

Syntax:

    var dt = new Date();
    dt.setSeconds(second);

Examples:

    Input/Date class object declaration:
    var dt = new Date();

    Function call to set the Seconds:
    dt.setSeconds(45);

    Function call to get the Seconds:
    dt.getSeconds(); 
    
    Output:
    45

	var dt = new Date();
	//getting current Seconds
	var Second = dt.getSeconds();
	//printing
	document.write("Second: " + Second + "<br>");
	
	//setting Second to 45
	dt.setSeconds(45);
	//getting & printing Seconds again
	Second = dt.getSeconds();
	document.write("Second: " + Second + "<br>");	

	//setting invalid Seconds
	//setting Second to 61
	dt.setSeconds(61);
	//getting & printing Seconds again
	Second = dt.getSeconds();
	document.write("Second: " + Second + "<br>");
