The byteOffset accessor property represents the offset (in bytes) of a typed array from the start of its ArrayBuffer.

Syntax

typedarray.byteOffset

Description

The byteOffset property is an accessor property whose set accessor function is undefined, meaning that you can only read this property. The value is established when a TypedArray is constructed and cannot be changed. TypedArray is one of the TypedArray objects.

Examples

Using the byteOffset property

var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(8);

var uint8 = new Uint8Array(buffer);
uint8.byteOffset; // 0 (no offset specified)

var uint8 = new Uint8Array(buffer, 3);
uint8.byteOffset; // 3 (as specified when constructing Uint8Array)
