SharedWorkerGlobalScope.name

The name read-only property of the SharedWorkerGlobalScope interface returns the name that the SharedWorker was (optionally) given when it was created. This is the name that the SharedWorker() constructor can pass to get a reference to the SharedWorkerGlobalScope.

Syntax

var nameObj = self.name;

Value

A DOMString.

Example

If a shared worker is created using a constructor with a name option:

var myWorker = new SharedWorker("worker.js", { name : "mySharedWorker" });

the SharedWorkerGlobalScope will now have a name of "mySharedWorker", returnable by running

self.name

from inside the shared worker.
