I was trying to convert my date to GMT and then get each individual date part but it won't let me use the normal getMonth, getDate, etc--I'm guessing because it converted the date to a string?   How can I get the individual parts of the date like my code below the following 2 lines?   The date has to be in GMT.

dteDate = new Date();
dteDate = dteDate.toUTCString();


// this is how i originally broke the date apart before converting to GMT      
var dteMonth = dteDate.getMonth() + 1;
var dteDay = dteDate.getDate();
var dteYear = dteDate.getYear();
var dteHours = dteDate.getHours();
var dteMin = dteDate.getMinutes();
var dteSec = dteDate.getSeconds();
