The toGMTString() method converts a date to a string, using Internet GMT conventions. The exact format of the value returned by toGMTString varies according to the platform and browser, in general it should represent a human readable date string.

Note: toGMTString is deprecated and should no longer be used, it's only there for backwards compatibility, use toUTCString() instead.




Example: Using toGMTString

In this example, the toGMTString method converts the date to GMT (UTC) using the operating system's time-zone offset and returns a string value that is similar to the following form. The exact format depends on the platform.

var today = new Date();
var str = today.toGMTString();  // deprecated! use toUTCString()

console.log(str);               // Mon, 18 Dec 1995 17:28:35 GMT
