    window.matchMedia Redirect 1

    « window


    Returns a new MediaQueryList object representing the parsed results of the specified media query string.


    mql = window.matchMedia(mediaQueryString)

    where mediaQueryString is a string representing the media query for which to return a new MediaQueryList object.


    if (window.matchMedia("(min-width: 400px)").matches) {
      /* the view port is at least 400 pixels wide */
    } else {
      /* the view port is less than 400 pixels wide */

    This code lets you handle things differently when the window is very narrow.

    See Using media queries from code for additional examples.
