The State type of the downloads API defines different states that a current download can be in.

A downloads.DownloadItem's state property will contain a string taken from the values defined in this type.


Values of this type are strings. Possible values are:


The browser is currently receiving download data from the server.


An error broke the connection with the server.


The download completed successfully.

Note: These string constants will never change, but new constants may be added.

Browser compatibility

BCD tables only load in the browser

Note: This API is based on Chromium's chrome.downloads API.
