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.


A string.


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

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

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

from inside the worker.
