WebGLContextEvent.statusMessage

The read-only WebGLContextEvent.statusMessage property contains additional event status information, or is an empty string if no additional information is available.

Examples

The statusMessage property can contain a platform dependent string with details of an event. This can occur, for example, if the webglcontextcreationerror event is fired.

const canvas = document.getElementById('canvas');
const gl = canvas.getContext('webgl');

canvas.addEventListener('webglcontextcreationerror', (e) => {
  console.log(`WebGL context creation failed: ${e.statusMessage || 'Unknown error'}`);
}, false);
