The WebSocket object provides the API for creating and managing a WebSocket connection to a server, as well as for sending and receiving data on the connection.

 
 public interface WebSocket extends EventTarget {

  
The connection is closed or couldn't be opened.
 
 
     static final int CLOSED = 3;

  
The connection is in the process of closing.
 
 
     static final int CLOSING = 2;

  
The connection is not yet open.
 
 
     static final int CONNECTING = 0;

  
The connection is open and ready to communicate.
 
 
     static final int OPEN = 1;
 
   String getURL();


  
A string indicating the type of binary data being transmitted by the connection. This should be either "blob" if DOM Blob  objects are being used or "arraybuffer" if ArrayBuffer objects are being used.
 
 
   void setBinaryType(String arg);


  
The number of bytes of data that have been queued using calls to but not yet transmitted to the network. This value does not reset to zero when the connection is closed; if you keep calling , this will continue to climb. Read only.
 
   int getBufferedAmount();


  
The extensions selected by the server. This is currently only the empty string or a list of extensions as negotiated by the connection.
 
   String getExtensions();


  
An event listener to be called when the WebSocket connection's readyState changes to CLOSED. The listener receives a CloseEvent named "close".
 
 
   void setOnclose(EventListener arg);


  
An event listener to be called when an error occurs. This is a simple event named "error".
 
 
   void setOnerror(EventListener arg);


  
An event listener to be called when a message is received from the server. The listener receives a MessageEvent named "message".
  void setOnmessage(EventListener arg);


  
An event listener to be called when the WebSocket connection's readyState changes to OPEN; this indicates that the connection is ready to send and receive data. The event is a simple one with the name "open".
  void setOnopen(EventListener arg);


  
A string indicating the name of the sub-protocol the server selected; this will be one of the strings specified in the protocols parameter when creating the WebSocket object.
The current state of the connection; this is one of the Ready state constants. Read only.
  int getReadyState();


  
The URL as resolved by the constructor. This is always an absolute URL. Read only.
  EventRemover addEventListener(String typeEventListener listenerboolean useCapture);


  

Closes the WebSocket connection or connection attempt, if any. If the connection is already CLOSED, this method does nothing.

Parameters
code Optional
A numeric value indicating the status code explaining why the connection is being closed. If this parameter is not specified, a default value of 1000 (indicating a normal "transaction complete" closure) is assumed. See the list of status codes on the CloseEvent page for permitted values.
reason Optional
A human-readable string explaining why the connection is closing. This string must be no longer than 123 UTF-8 characters.
Exceptions thrown
INVALID_ACCESS_ERR
An invalid code was specified.
SYNTAX_ERR
The reason string is too long or contains unpaired surrogates.
  void close();


  

Closes the WebSocket connection or connection attempt, if any. If the connection is already CLOSED, this method does nothing.

Parameters
code Optional
A numeric value indicating the status code explaining why the connection is being closed. If this parameter is not specified, a default value of 1000 (indicating a normal "transaction complete" closure) is assumed. See the list of status codes on the CloseEvent page for permitted values.
reason Optional
A human-readable string explaining why the connection is closing. This string must be no longer than 123 UTF-8 characters.
Exceptions thrown
INVALID_ACCESS_ERR
An invalid code was specified.
SYNTAX_ERR
The reason string is too long or contains unpaired surrogates.
  void close(int code);


  

Closes the WebSocket connection or connection attempt, if any. If the connection is already CLOSED, this method does nothing.

Parameters
code Optional
A numeric value indicating the status code explaining why the connection is being closed. If this parameter is not specified, a default value of 1000 (indicating a normal "transaction complete" closure) is assumed. See the list of status codes on the CloseEvent page for permitted values.
reason Optional
A human-readable string explaining why the connection is closing. This string must be no longer than 123 UTF-8 characters.
Exceptions thrown
INVALID_ACCESS_ERR
An invalid code was specified.
SYNTAX_ERR
The reason string is too long or contains unpaired surrogates.
  void close(int codeString reason);
  boolean dispatchEvent(Event evt);
  void removeEventListener(String typeEventListener listener);
  void removeEventListener(String typeEventListener listenerboolean useCapture);


  

Transmits data to the server over the WebSocket connection.

Parameters
data
A text string to send to the server.
Exceptions thrown
INVALID_STATE_ERR
The connection is not currently OPEN.
SYNTAX_ERR
The data is a string that has unpaired surrogates.
Remarks

Gecko 6.0 note
(Firefox 6.0 / Thunderbird 6.0 / SeaMonkey 2.3)

Gecko's implementation of the send() method differs somewhat from the specification in Gecko 6.0; Gecko returns a boolean indicating whether or not the connection is still open (and, by extension, that the data was successfully queued or transmitted); this is corrected in Gecko 8.0 (Firefox 8.0 / Thunderbird 8.0 / SeaMonkey 2.5) . In addition, at this time, Gecko does not support ArrayBuffer or Blob data types.

  boolean send(String data);
