Increment a current date by 7 days using JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to increment a current date by 7 days in JavaScript using the Date object.

Incrementing the Date by 7 days

To increment a date by 7 days:

  1. Use the new Date() constructor to access the current date.

  2. We need to increment the date by adding a 7 days to it using the setDate() and getDate() methods.

Here is an example:

const current = new Date();

// it adds 7 days to the current date
current.setDate(current.getDate() + 7);
console.log(current.toDateString());

/* If today's date is "Tue Sep 06 2022"
then it returns date after 7 days is "Tue Sep 13 2022" */

Even if today is the last day of a month like August 31st. The JavaScript Date object can also figure out after 7 days date is September 6th.

Definitions

  • The setDate() method takes the day (from 1 to 31) as an argument and sets the value to a Date object.

  • The getDate() method gets the current day of the month (from 1 - 31).
