This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The DOMPointReadOnly interface specifies the standard properties used by DOMPoint to define a 2D or 3D point in a coordinate system.


Defined to create a new DOMPointReadOnly object, but note that this constructor cannot be called by 3rd party JavaScript: doing so returns an "Illegal constructor" typeError.


Translates the position/perspective of a DOMPoint to a new position (doesn't appear to be supported anywhere yet.)
Applies a matrix transform to a DOMPointReadOnly object (doesn't appear to be supported anywhere yet.)
Returns a JSON representation of the DOMPointReadOnly object.


DOMPointReadOnly.x Read only
The x coordinate of the DOMPoint.
DOMPointReadOnly.y Read only
The y coordinate of the DOMPoint.
DOMPointReadOnly.z Read only
The z coordinate of the DOMPoint.
DOMPointReadOnly.w Read only
The perspective value of the DOMPoint.


Specification Status Comment
