TextDecoderStream.encoding

The encoding read-only property of the TextDecoderStream interface returns a string containing the name of the encoding algorithm used by the specific encoder.

The encoding is set by the constructor label parameter, and defaults to utf-8.

Value

A string containing the lower-cased ASCII name of the encoding format.

The allowed values are the same as those listed in TextDecoder.encoding (the labels in Encoding API Encodings).

Examples

Returning the value of encoding from a TextDecoderStream.

stream = new TextDecoderStream();
console.log(stream.encoding); // returns the default "utf-8"
