The Window.devicePixelRatio read-only property returns the ratio of the (vertical) size of one physical pixel on the current display device to the size of one device independent pixels(dips).

There are no callbacks or events to listen to when this value changes (for example, if you drag the window between displays with different densities).


<var>value</var> = window.devicePixelRatio;
