DataView.prototype.setInt16()

The setInt16() method stores a signed 16-bit integer (short) value at the specified byte offset from the start of the DataView.

Syntax

setInt16(byteOffset, value)
setInt16(byteOffset, value, littleEndian)

Parameters

byteOffset
The offset, in byte, from the start of the view where to store the data.
value
The value to set.
littleEndian
Optional Indicates whether the 16-bit int is stored in little- or big-endian format. If false or undefined, a big-endian value is written.

Return value

undefined.

Errors thrown

RangeError
Thrown if the byteOffset is set such as it would store beyond the end of the view.

Examples

Using the setInt16 method

var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(8);
var dataview = new DataView(buffer);
dataview.setInt16(1, 3);
dataview.getInt16(1); // 3
