Request.redirect

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 redirect read-only property of the Request interface contains the mode for how redirects are handled.

Syntax

var myRedirect = request.redirect;

Value

A RequestRedirect enum value, which can be one the following strings:

  • follow
  • error
  • manual

If not specified when the request is created, it takes the default value of follow.

Example

In the following snippet, we create a new request using the Request.Request() constructor (for an image file in the same directory as the script), then save the request redirect value in a variable:

var myRequest = new Request('flowers.jpg');
var myCred = myRequest.redirect;
