The getBigUint64() method is used to get an unsigned 64-bit integer (unsigned long long) at the particular byte offset from the start of the DataView.


dataview.getBigUint64(byteOffset [, littleEndian])

Parameters: This method accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • byteOffset: This parameter specifies the offset, in bytes, from the start of the view to read the data.
  • littleEndian: It is an optional parameter. If it is true then it indicates if the 64-bit int is stored in little- or big-endian format. If set to false or not-defined, then a big-endian value is read.

Return Value: It returns a BigInt value.

Example 1: In this example, the offset passed is 0, so the value printed is 0 because the value is not set.


   // Creating buffer with size in byte 
   var buffr = new ArrayBuffer(16); 
   // Creating a view 
   var dView = new DataView(buffr);
   // Getting the value



Example 2: In this example, the offset passed is 4, so the value printed is 1234 because it is set before.


    // Create an ArrayBuffer with a size in bytes
    const buffr = new ArrayBuffer(16);
    // A value to set
    const val = 1234n;
    const view = new DataView(buffr);
    view.setBigUint64(4, val);
    // Getting the value
