The mediaType property of the NDEFRecord interface returns the MIME type of the record. This value will be null if recordType is not equal to "mime".

Syntax

NDEFRecord.mediaType

Value

A string, containing the MIME type of the record payload.

Examples

The following example loops over the records in an NDEFMessage object, which is retrieved from NDEFReadingEvent.message. It then uses the mediaType property to determine which of the records to parse.

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}`);
      }
    }
  };
