VRDisplay.displayName

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The displayName read-only property of the VRDisplay interface returns a human-readable name to identify the VRDisplay.

Note: This property was part of the old WebVR API. It has been superseded by the WebXR Device API.

This will generally be something like "Oculus VR HMD (HMD)" or "Oculus VR HMD (Sensor)".

Syntax

var myDisplayName = vrDisplayInstance.displayName;

Value

A DOMString containing the human-readable name of the specific VR display.

Examples

See VRDisplayCapabilities for example code.

Specifications

This property was part of the old WebVR API that has been superseded by the WebXR Device API. It is no longer on track to becoming a standard.

Until all browsers have implemented the new WebXR APIs, it is recommended to rely on frameworks, like A-Frame, Babylon.js, or Three.js, or a polyfill, to develop WebXR applications that will work across all browsers [1].
