VRLayerInit

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 VRLayerInit interface (dictionary) of the WebVR API represents a content layer (an HTMLCanvasElement or OffscreenCanvas) that you want to present in a VR display.

You can retrieve VRLayerInit objects using VRDisplay.getLayers(), and present them using the VRDisplay.requestPresent() method.

Properties

VRLayerInit.leftBounds
Defines the left texture bounds of the canvas whose contents will be presented by the VRDisplay.
VRLayerInit.rightBounds
Defines the right texture bounds of the canvas whose contents will be presented by the VRDisplay.
VRLayerInit.source
Defines the canvas whose contents will be presented by the VRDisplay when VRDisplay.submitFrame() is called.

Examples

TBD.
