The DataView.prototype property represents the prototype for the DataView object.

Property attributes of DataView.prototype
Writable no
Enumerable no
Configurable no

Description

DataView instances inherit from DataView.prototype. As with all constructors, you can change the constructor's prototype object to make changes to all DataView instances.

Properties

DataView.prototype.constructor
Specifies the function that creates an object's prototype. The initial value is the standard built-in DataView constructor.
DataView.prototype.buffer Read only
The ArrayBuffer referenced by this view. Fixed at construction time and thus read only.
DataView.prototype.byteLength Read only
The length (in bytes) of this view from the start of its ArrayBuffer. Fixed at construction time and thus read only.
DataView.prototype.byteOffset Read only
The offset (in bytes) of this view from the start of its ArrayBuffer. Fixed at construction time and thus read only.

Methods

Read

DataView.prototype.getInt8()
Gets a signed 8-bit integer (byte) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getUint8()
Gets an unsigned 8-bit integer (unsigned byte) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getInt16()
Gets a signed 16-bit integer (short) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getUint16()
Gets an unsigned 16-bit integer (unsigned short) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getInt32()
Gets a signed 32-bit integer (long) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getUint32()
Gets an unsigned 32-bit integer (unsigned long) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getFloat32()
Gets a signed 32-bit float (float) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
DataView.prototype.getFloat64()
Gets a signed 64-bit float (double) at the specified byte offset from the start of the view.
