The getInt16() method gets a signed 16-bit integer (short) at the specified byte offset from the start of the DataView.

Syntax

getInt16(byteOffset)
getInt16(byteOffset, littleEndian)

Parameters

byteOffset

The offset, in byte, from the start of the view where to read the data.

littleEndian

Optional Indicates whether the 16-bit int is stored in little- or big-endian format. If false or undefined, a big-endian value is read.

Return value

A signed 16-bit integer number.

Errors thrown

RangeError

Thrown if the byteOffset is set such as it would read beyond the end of the view.
