MozActivityOptions

« DOM Reference

Non-standard
This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

This API is available on Firefox or Firefox OS for installed or higher privileged applications.

Summary

The MozActivityOptions interface allows apps to declare the activity they want to create and also to access information of activities they want to handle.

When an application creates an activity by creating a MozActivity object, it has to pass a MozActivityOptions object. Then, when the activity is handled by the other application, a similar MozActivityOptions option can be found through MozActivityRequestHandler.source.
