PerformanceNavigationTiming.toJSON()

The toJSON() method of the PerformanceNavigationTiming interface is a serializer; it returns a JSON representation of the PerformanceNavigationTiming object.

Syntax

toJSON()

Parameters

None.

Return value

A JSON object that is the serialization of the PerformanceNavigationTiming object.

Examples

Using the toJSON method

In this example, calling entry.toJSON() returns a JSON representation of the PerformanceNavigationTiming object.

const observer = new PerformanceObserver((list) => {
  list.getEntries().forEach((entry) => {
    console.log(entry.toJSON());
  });
});

observer.observe({ entryTypes: ["navigation"] });

This would log a JSON object like so:

}

To get a JSON string, you can use JSON.stringify(entry) directly; it will call toJSON() automatically.
