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.
requestAnimationFrame() method of the
VRDisplay interface is a special implementation of
Window.requestAnimationFrame containing a callback function that will be called every time a new frame of the
VRDisplay presentation is rendered:
- When the
VRDisplayis not presenting a scene, this is functionally equivalent to
- When the VRDisplay is presenting, the callback is called at the native refresh rate of the
var handle = vrDisplayInstance.requestAnimationFrame(callback);
- A callback function that will be called every time a new frame of the
VRDisplaypresentation is rendered.
A long representing the handle of the
requestAnimationFrame() call. This can then be passed to a
VRDisplay.cancelAnimationFrame() call to unregister the callback.
