element.onwheel Redirect 1

« DOM Reference

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


The onwheel property returns the onwheel event handler code on the current element.


element.onwheel = event handling code


The wheel event is raised when the user scrolls the contents of a element.
