This is an archived page. It's not actively maintained.

This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.

The BluetoothDeviceEvent interface of the Web Bluetooth API provides access to a found/paired device (BluetoothDevice) object or the address or an unpaired device as the parameter of a devicefounddevicepaired or deviceunpaired event handler (see BluetoothDiscoveryHandle.ondevicefound, BluetoothAdapter.ondevicepaired, and BluetoothAdapter.ondeviceunpaired), when fired.

Interface overview

interface BluetoothDeviceEvent : Event
  readonly attribute BluetoothDevice? device;
  readonly attribute DOMString? address;


BluetoothDeviceEvent.device Read only
Returns a BluetoothDevice object representing the paired remote device. Returns null for the BluetoothAdapter.ondeviceunpaired event handler since the that only requires the address of the unpaired device.
BluetoothDeviceEvent.address Read only
Returns a DOMString representing the address of the unpaired remote device. Returns null for the BluetoothDiscoveryHandle.ondevicefound and BluetoothAdapter.ondevicepaired event handlers since a found/paired remote device already has an BluetoothDevice.address property.
