Response.headers

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 headers read-only property of the Response interface contains the Headers object associated with the response.

Syntax

var myHeaders = response.headers;

Value

A Headers object.

Example

In our Fetch Response example (see Fetch Response live) we create a new Request object using the Request() constructor, passing it a JPG path. We then fetch this request using fetch(), extract a blob from the response using Body.blob, create an object URL out of it using URL.createObjectURL, and display this in an <img>.

Note that at the top of the fetch() block we log the response headers value to the console.

var myImage = document.querySelector('img');

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

fetch(myRequest).then(function(response) {
  console.log(response.headers); // returns a Headers{} object
  response.blob().then(function(myBlob) {
    var objectURL = URL.createObjectURL(myBlob);
    myImage.src = objectURL;
  });
});
