NavigateEvent.hashChange

Experimental: This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The hashChange read-only property of the NavigateEvent interface returns true if the navigation is a fragment navigation (i.e. to a fragment identifier in the same document), or false otherwise.

Value

A boolean value—true if the navigation is a fragment navigation, false if not.

Examples

navigation.addEventListener("navigate", (event) => {
  // Some navigations, e.g. cross-origin navigations, we
  // cannot intercept. Let the browser handle those normally.
  if (!event.canIntercept) {
    return;
  }

  // Don't intercept fragment navigations or downloads.
  if (event.hashChange || event.downloadRequest !== null) {
    return;
  }

  event.intercept({
    handler() {
      if (event.formData) {
        processFormDataAndUpdateUI(event.formData, event.signal);
      } else {
        doSinglePageAppNav(event.destination, event.signal);
      }
    }
  });
});
