WritableStreamDefaultWriter.desiredSize

Experimental

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

The desiredSize read-only property of the WritableStreamDefaultWriter interface returns the desired size required to fill the stream's internal queue.

Syntax

var desiredSize = writableStreamDefaultWriter.desiredSize;

Value

An integer. Note that this can be negative if the queue is over-full.

The value will be null if the stream cannot be successfully written to (due to either being errored, or having an abort queued up), and zero if the stream is closed.

Exceptions

TypeError
The writer’s lock is released.

Examples

const writableStream = new WritableStream({
  write(chunk) {
    ...
  },
  close() {
    ...
  },
  abort(err) {
    ...
  }
}, queuingStrategy);

...

const writer = writableStream.getWriter();

...

// return stream's desired size
let size = writer.desiredSize;
