This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The read-only RTCDataChannel property negotiated indicates whether the RTCDataChannel's connection was negotiated by the Web app (true) or by the WebRTC layer (false). The default is false.

See "Creating a data channel" in Using WebRTC data channels for further information about this property.


var negotiated = aDataChannel.negotiated;


true if the RTCDataChannel's connection was negotiated by the Web app itself; false if the negotiation was handled by the WebRTC layer. The default is false.


// TBD
