MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

IntersectionObserver.takeRecords()

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The IntersectionObserver method takeRecords() returns an array of IntersectionObserverEntry objects, one for each targeted element which has experienced an intersection change since the last time the intersections were checked, either explicitly through a call to this method or implicitly by an automatic call to the observer's callback.

If you use the callback to monitor these changes, you don't need to call this method. Calling this method clears the pending intersection list, so the callback will not be run.

Syntax

intersectionObserverEntries = IntersectionObserver.takeRecords();

Parameters

None.

Return value

An array of IntersectionObserverEntry objects, one for each target element whose intersection with the root has changed since the last time the intersections were checked.
