PermissionStatus

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 PermissionStatus interface of the Permissions API provides the state of an object and an event handler for monitoring changes to said state.

Properties

PermissionStatus.state Read only  
Returns the state of a requested permission; one of 'granted', 'denied', or 'prompt'.
PermissionStatus.statusRead only
Returns the state of a requested permission; one of 'granted', 'denied', or 'prompt'. Later versions of the specification replace this with PermissionStatus.state.

Event Handler

PermissionStatus.onchange
An event called whenever PermissionStatus.status changes.

Example

navigator.permissions.query({name:'geolocation'}).then(function(permissionStatus) {
  console.log('geolocation permission status is ', permissionStatus.state);
  permissionStatus.onchange = function() {
    console.log('geolocation permission status has changed to ', this.state);
  };
});
