VRDisplayCapabilities.maxLayers

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 maxLayers read-only property of the VRDisplayCapabilities interface returns a number indicating the maximum number of VRLayers that the VR display can present at once (e.g. the maximum length of the array that Display.requestPresent() can accept.)

Syntax

var maximumLayers = vrDisplayCapabilitiesInstance.maxLayers;

Value

A number, which must be 1 if VRDisplayCapabilities.canPresent is true, or 0 otherwise.

Examples

TBD.
