Navigator.activeVRDisplays

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The activeVRDisplays read-only property of the Navigator interface returns an array containing every VRDisplay object that is currently presenting (VRDisplay.ispresenting is true).

Syntax

var myActiveDisplays = navigator.activeVRDisplays;

Value

An array of VRDisplay objects.

Examples

function showActive() {
  var displays = navigator.activeVRDisplays;
  for(var i = 0; i < displays.length; i++) {
    console.log('Display ' + displays[i].displayId + ' is active.');
  }
}
