bigEndian Property

This property is a Boolean flag specifying whether to use bigEndian byte ordering when calling getValue() and putValue().




When a data value consists of more than one byte, the byte containing the smallest units of the value is called the least significant byte; the byte containing the biggest units of the value is called the most significant byte. When the bigEndian property is true, the bytes are stored in descending order of significance. When false, they are stored in ascending order of significance.

This value is set when a buffer is created, but may be changed at any time. This property defaults to the state of the underlying operating system and processor.
