JavaScript | dataView.setFloat32()

The dataView.setFloat32() is an inbuilt function in dataView which is used to store a signed 32-bit float value at the specified location i.e, at byte offset from the start of the dataView.
Syntax:

dataView.setFloat32(byteOffset)

Parameters: It has parameter byteOffset which is offset in byte and it says from the start of the view where to read the data.
Return value: This function does not return anything.

   // Creating buffer with size in byte
   var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
   // Creating a view
   var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
   // put the data 56.24 at slot 1
   dataview1.setFloat32(1, 56.24);
   document.write(dataview1.getFloat32(1));
     
</script>

   var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
   // put the value of PI at slot 1
   dataview1.setFloat32(1, Math.PI);
   document.write(dataview1.getFloat32(1) + "<br>");
     
</script>
