    GamepadEvent.gamepad

    The GamepadEvent.gamepad property of the GamepadEvent interface returns a Gamepad object, providing access to the associated gamepad data for fired gamepadconnected and gamepaddisconnected events.

    Note: These events are not fired in Chrome, only Firefox. In Chrome you have to use Navigator.getGamepads to access Gamepad objects.

    Syntax

    readonly    attribute Gamepad gamepad;

    Example

    The gamepad property being called on a fired Window.gamepadconnected event.

    window.addEventListener("gamepadconnected", function(e) {
      console.log("Gamepad connected at index %d: %s. %d buttons, %d axes.",
      e.gamepad.index, e.gamepad.id,
      e.gamepad.buttons.length, e.gamepad.axes.length);
    });

    Value

    A Gamepad object.
