VRStageParameters.sizeY

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The sizeY read-only property of the VRStageParameters interface returns the depth of the play-area bounds in meters.

The bounds are defined as an axis-aligned rectangle on the floor, for safety purposes. Content should not require the user to move beyond these bounds; however, it is possible for the user to ignore the bounds resulting in position values outside of this rectangle. The center of the rectangle is at (0,0,0) in standing-space coordinates.

Syntax

var mySizeY = vrStageParametersInstance.sizeY;

Value

A float representing the depth in meters.

Examples

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

navigator.getVRDisplays().then(function(displays) {
  vrDisplay = displays[0];
  var stageParams = vrDisplay.stageParameters;
  // stageParams is a VRStageParameters object

  if(stageParams === null) {
    info.textContent = 'Your VR Hardware does not support room-scale experiences.'
  } else {
    info.innerHTML = '<strong>Display stage parameters</strong>'
                 + '<br>Sitting to standing transform: ' + stageParams.sittingToStandingTransform
                 + '<br>Play area width (m): ' + stageParams.sizeX
                 + '<br>Play area depth (m): ' + stageParams.sizeY
  }
});
