BroadcastChannel: name property

Baseline 2022

Newly available

Since March 2022, this feature works across the latest devices and browser versions. This feature might not work in older devices or browsers.

The read-only BroadcastChannel.name property returns a string, which uniquely identifies the given channel with its name. This name is passed to the BroadcastChannel() constructor at creation time and is therefore read-only.

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers

Values

A string.

Examples

js
// Connect to a channel
const bc = new BroadcastChannel("test_channel");

// More operations (like postMessage, …)

// Log the channel name to the console
console.log(bc.name); // "test_channel"

// When done, disconnect from the channel
bc.close();
