W3C Candidate Recommendation
Posts a message through the channel, from one port to the other.
Method of apis/web-messaging/MessagePort
Data-type: any Optional
Objects listed in transfer are transferred, not just cloned, meaning that they are no longer usable on the sending side. Throws a DataCloneError if transfer array contains duplicate objects or the source or target ports, or if message could not be cloned.
No return value
Needs Examples: This section should include examples.
When you create a new MessageChannel object, it has two connected MessagePort objects that can only send and receive messages between them. If the ports parameter is supplied but contains errors, an InvalidStateError exception is thrown. Sending a message containing an un-supported object (such as a function), a DataCloneError exception is thrown.
