Event HIDConnectionEvent

Constructor

HIDConnectionEvent() Experimental

This interface also inherits properties from 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}`);
});
