Date 만들기

Date 객체로 날짜와 시간을 다룰 수 있다.
Date myDate = new Date()
위와 같이 new 키워드를 사용하여 새로운 객체를 생성할 수 있고 기본으로 현재 시간과 날짜로 세팅된다.

Date 객체 다루기

2010년 1월 14일
var myDate=new Date()
myDate.setFullYear(2010,0,14)
Java와 마찬가지로 month가 약간 이상하다. 아무리 0이 인덱스의 처음이라지만 1월을 0으로 표현한건 별로 맘에 안든다.

5일 뒤로
var myDate=new Date()
myDate.setDate(myDate.getDate()+5)
+ 연산자를 써서 날짜를 변경시킬 수 있나보다. 기본은 일로 취급하는 듯.

날짜 비교하기

var myDate=new Date()
myDate.setFullYear(2010,0,14)

var today = new Date()

if (myDate>today)
  alert(“Today is before 14th January 2010”)
else
  alert(“Today is after 14th January 2010”)

부등호로 비교할 수 있다니.. 편리하군.
