    Worker.terminate()

    The terminate() method of the Worker interface immediately terminates the Worker. This does not offer the worker an opportunity to finish its operations; it is simply stopped at once.

    Syntax

    myWorker.terminate();

    Parameters

    None.

    Returns

    Void.

    Example

    The following code snippet shows creation of a Worker object using the Worker() constructor, which is then immediately terminated.

    var myWorker = new Worker("worker.js");
    
    myWorker.terminate();
