The oncanplaythrough property sets and returns the event handler for the canplaythrough event.


element.oncanplaythrough = handlerFunction;
var handlerFunction = element.oncanplaythrough;

handlerFunction should be either null or a JavaScript function specifying the handler for the event.


See the DOM event handlers page for information on working with on... handlers.

The canplaythrough event is fired when the user agent can play the media and estimates that enough data has been loaded to play the media up to its end without having to stop for further buffering of content.

See the canplaythrough event documentation for more information about the event.
