onreadystatechange Event

Fires when the readyState method changes.

Inline HTML

<ELEMENT onreadystatechange = "handler" ... >

All platforms

Event property

object.onreadystatechange = handler

Microsoft® JScript® (compatible with ECMA 262 language specification) only

Named script

<SCRIPT FOR = object EVENT = onreadystatechange>

Microsoft Internet Explorer only

oXMLDOMDocument.onreadystatechange;

Example

The following JScript and HTML example demonstrates the sequence of ready states when asynchronously loading a document.

<script>
var xmldoc;
function Load()
{
  xmldoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.6.0");
  xmldoc.onreadystatechange = CheckState;
  xmldoc.load(URL.value);
}
function CheckState()
{
  var state = xmldoc.readyState;
  RESULTS.innerHTML += "readyState = " + state + "<BR>"
  if (state == 4)
  {
    var err = xmldoc.parseError;
    if (err.errorCode != 0)
      RESULTS.innerHTML += err.reason + "<BR>"
    else RESULTS.innerHTML +="success" + "<BR>"
  }
}
</script>
URL: <input type=text size=60 id=URL>
<input type=button value=LOAD onclick="jscript:Load()">
<div id=RESULTS style= "color:red;font-weight:bold;"></div>
