BluetoothDeviceEvent (Firefox OS)

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.
