Gets all commands for the extension that you have registered using the commands manifest.json key.

The commands are returned as an array of commands.Command objects. Alternately, if you are using the promise-based version of the API, browser.commands.getAll(), the commands are passed into the onFulfilled argument to Promise.then().

This is an asynchronous function that returns a Promise.


var getCommands = browser.commands.getAll();



Return value

A Promise that will be fulfilled with an array of commands.Command objects, one for each command registered for the extension. If no commands were registered, the array will be empty.
