DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope.name

The name read-only property of the DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope interface returns the name that the Worker was (optionally) given when it was created. This is the name that the Worker() constructor can pass to get a reference to the DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope.

Syntax

var nameObj = self.name;

Value

A DOMString.

Example

If a worker is created using a constructor with a name option:

var myWorker = new Worker("worker.js", { name : "myWorker" });

the DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope will now have a name of "myWorker", returnable by running

self.name

from inside the worker.
