JavaScript Manipulating ArrayBuffers with DataViews


DataViews provide methods to read and write individual values from an ArrayBuffer, instead of viewing the entire thing as an array of a single type. Here we set two bytes individually then interpret them together as a 16-bit unsigned integer, first big-endian then little-endian.

var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(2);
var view = new DataView(buffer);

view.setUint8(0, 0xFF);
view.setUint8(1, 0x01);

console.log(view.getUint16(0, false)); // 65281
console.log(view.getUint16(0, true));  // 511
