Value

A double.

Examples

var info = document.querySelector('p');
var list = document.querySelector('ul');
var vrDisplay;

if(navigator.getVRDisplays) {
    reportFieldOfView();
} else {
  info.textContent = 'WebVR API not supported by this browser.'
}

function reportFieldOfView() {
  navigator.getVRDisplays().then(function(displays) {
    vrDisplay = displays[0];
    var lEye = vrDisplay.getEyeParameters('left');
    var rEye = vrDisplay.getEyeParameters('right');
    // lEye and rEye are VREyeParameters objects

    var lFOV = lEye.fieldOfView;
    var rFOV = rEye.fieldOfView;
    // lFOV and rFOV are VRFieldOfView objects

    var listitem1 = document.createElement('li');
    var listitem2 = document.createElement('li');

    listitem1.innerHTML = '<strong>Left eye parameters</strong>'
                 + '<br>Offset: ' + lEye.offset
