SettingsManager Redirect 1

« DOM Reference

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

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

Provides access to the device's settings.


References a Handler to manage change states of settings.


Returns a SettingsLock object to safely access settings asynchronously.
Allows to bind a function to any change on a given settings
Allows to unbind a function previously set with addObserver.


Not part of any specification yet; however, this API will be discuss at W3C as part of the System Applications Working Group.
