Window: gamepaddisconnected event

The gamepaddisconnected event is fired when the browser detects that a gamepad has been disconnected.

The event will not fire if disallowed by the document's gamepad Feature Policy.

This event is not cancelable and does not bubble.

Examples

To be informed when a gamepad is disconnected, you can add a handler to the window using addEventListener(), like this:

window.addEventListener('gamepaddisconnected', (event) => {
    console.log('Lost connection with the gamepad.');
});

Alternatively, you can use the window.ongamepaddisconnected event handler property to establish a handler for the gamepaddisconnected event:

window.ongamepaddisconnected = (event) => {
    console.log('Lost connection with the gamepad.');
};
