HIDConnectionEvent

Secure context

This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The HIDConnectionEvent interface of the WebHID API represents HID connection events, and is the event type passed to HID.onconnect and HID.ondisconnect when an input report is received.

Constructor

HIDConnectionEvent.HIDConnectionEvent()
Returns a new HIDConnectionEvent object. Typically this constructor is not used as events are created when an input report is received.

Properties

This interface also inherits properties from Event.

HIDConnectionEvent.deviceRead only
Returns the HIDDevice instance representing the device associated with the connection event.

Examples

The following example registers event listeners for connect and disconnect events, then prints the HIDDevice.productName to the console.

navigator.hid.addEventListener('connect', ({device}) => {
  console.log(`HID connected: ${device.productName}`);
});

navigator.hid.addEventListener('disconnect', ({device}) => {
  console.log(`HID disconnected: ${device.productName}`);
});
