start | onstart event

Fires at the beginning of every loop of the marquee object.

Syntax

HTML Attribute <element onstart = "handler(event)">
Event Property object.onstart = handler;
addEventListener Method object.addEventListener("start", handler, useCapture)

Event information

SynchronousNo
BubblesNo
CancelableNo

Event handler parameters

pEvtObj [in]

Standards information

There are no standards that apply here.

Remarks

The start method does not cause the onstart event to fire.

Initiates the next loop of the marquee contents.

To invoke this event, do one of the following:

  • Set the LOOP attribute to 1 or higher.
  • Omit the LOOP attribute so that the marquee loops indefinitely.

Examples

This example shows how to use the onstart event on a marquee.


<body>
<p>An alert dialog box displays each time the onstart event fires.
<marquee onstart="console.log('onstart fired')"
		 behavior=alernate loop=2>Marquee Text</marquee>
</body>
