Syntax

NDEFRecord.data

Value

A DataView that contains encoded payload data of the record.

Examples

The following example loops over the records in an NDEFMessage object, which is retrieved from NDEFReadingEvent.message. After selecting a record based on its mediaType, it then decodes what's stored in the data property.

const ndef = new NDEFReader();
await ndef.scan();
ndef.onreading = (event) => {
  const decoder = new TextDecoder();
  for (const record of event.message.records) {
    if (record.mediaType === "application/json") {
      const json = JSON.parse(decoder.decode(record.data));
      const article = /^[aeio]/i.test(json.title) ? "an" : "a";
      console.log(`${json.name} is ${article} ${json.title}`);
    }
  }
};
