close

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.

A close event either informs the target RTCDataChannel object that a data connection has been terminated, or informs the target <dialog> that it has been closed.

For WebRTC, an event handler for this event can be added via the RTCDataConnection.onclose property.
