MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

window.oninput Redirect 1


An event handler for the input event on the window. The input event is raised when an <input> element value changes. 

This event bubbles. If supported on the window, it is supported on <input> elements as well.



 console.log("keyup event detected! coming from this element:",;
}, false);


<input placeholder="type here and see console.">
