JavaScript DataView.getFloat64() Method
  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2020

Below is the example of the DataView.getFloat64() Method.

  • Example: When a positive float number passed as a parameter




    <script> 
        var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20); 
        var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10); 
        dataview1.setFloat64(1, 12.01); 
        document.write(dataview1.getFloat64(1) + "<br>"); 
    </script> 
  • Output:
    12.01

The dataView.getFloat64() is an inbuilt function in dataView which is used to get a 64-bit float at the specified location i.e, at byte offset from the start of the dataview. The range of 64-bit floating-point number is form -1.7E+308 to +1.7E+308

Syntax:

dataView.getFloat64(byteOffset)

Parameters: It has parameter byteOffset which is offset in a byte and it says from the start of the view were to read the data.

Return value: It returns 64-bit signed float number.



Example 1:

Input: dataview1.setFloat64(1, 56.34); 
Output: 56.34

Example 2:

Input: dataview1.setFloat64(1, Math.PI);
Output: 3.1415927410125732

JavaScript code to show the working of this method:
Code #1:




<script>
  
    // Creating buffer with size in byte
    var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
    // Creating a view
    var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
    // put the data 56.34 at slot 1
    dataview1.setFloat64(1, 56.34);
    document.write(dataview1.getFloat64(1) + "<br>");
  
</script>

Output:

56.34

Code #2:
Not only float value but also a math function like Math.PI can be taken as the parameter of the function.




<script>
  
    // Creating buffer with size in byte
    var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
    // Creating a view with slot from o to 10
    var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
    // put the value of PI at slot 1
    dataview1.setFloat64(1, Math.PI);
    document.write(dataview1.getFloat64(1) + "<br>");
  
</script>

Output:

3.1415927410125732

Code #3:
When nothing as data is used to store then it returns NaN i.e, not a number.




<script>
  
    // Creating buffer with size in byte
    var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
    // Creating a view
    var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
    // putting no data at slot 1
    dataview1.setFloat64(1);
    document.write(dataview1.getFloat64(1) + "<br>");
  
</script>

Output:

NaN
