SVGElement: load event

The load event fires on an SVGElement when it is loaded in the browser, e.g. in the DOM in the case of an embedded <svg>. It is basically the same as the standard load DOM event.

This event is not cancelable and does not bubble.


Use the event name in methods like addEventListener(), or set an event handler property.

addEventListener("load", (event) => {});

onload = (event) => {};

Event type

A generic Event.

  console.log("SVG loaded.");
