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.

This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The read-only RTCDataChannel property reliable indicates whether or not the data channel is reliable.

This property is obsolete. Use RTCDataChannel.ordered instead in any new code, and update existing code as soon as possible.


var reliable = aDataChannel.reliable;


true if the RTCDataChannel's connection is reliable; false if it isn't.

No longer part of any specification.
