Float32Array Object

A typed array of 32-bit float values. The contents are initialized to 0. If the requested number of bytes could not be allocated an exception is raised.

float32Array = new Float32Array( length );
float32Array = new Float32Array( array );
float32Array = new Float32Array( buffer, byteOffset, length);

float32Array

Required. The variable name to which the Float32Array object is assigned.

length

Specifies the number of elements in the array.

array

The array (or typed array) that is contained in this array. The contents are initialized to the contents of the given array or typed array, with each element converted to the Float32 type.

buffer

The ArrayBuffer that the Float32Array represents.

byteOffset

Optional. Specifies the offset in bytes from the start of the buffer at which the Float32Array should begin.

length

The number of elements in the array.

The following table lists the constants of the Float32Arrayobject.

Constant

Description

BYTES_PER_ELEMENT Constant

The size in bytes of each element in the array.

The following table lists the constants of the Float32Arrayobject.

Property

Description

buffer Property

Read-only. Gets the ArrayBuffer that is referenced by this array.

byteLength Property

Read-only. The length of this array from the start of its ArrayBuffer, in bytes, as fixed at construction time.

byteOffset Property

Read-only. The offset of this array from the start of its ArrayBuffer, in bytes, as fixed at construction time.

length Property

The length of the array.

The following table lists the methods of the Float32Arrayobject.

Method

Description

get Method

Omittable. Gets the element at the specified index.

set Method (Float32Array)

Sets a value or an array of values.

subarray Method (Float32Array)

Gets a new Float32Array view of the ArrayBuffer store for this array.

The following example shows how to use a Float32Array object to process the binary data acquired from an XmlHttpRequest:

var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
    req.open('GET', "http://www.example.com");
    req.responseType = "arraybuffer";
    req.send();

    req.onreadystatechange = function () {
        if (req.readyState === 4) {
            var buffer = req.response;
            var dataview = new DataView(buffer);
            var ints = new Float32Array(buffer.byteLength / 4);
            for (var i = 0; i < ints.length; i++) {
                ints[i] = dataview.getFloat32(i * 4);
            }
        alert(ints[10]);
        }
    }
