Window.onvrdisplayactivate

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 onvrdisplayactivate property of the Window interface represents an event handler that will run when a display is able to be presented to (when the vrdisplayactivate event fires), for example if an HMD has been moved to bring it out of standby, or woken up by being put on.

The event object is of type VRDisplayEvent.

Syntax

window.onvrdisplayactivate = function() { ... };

Examples

window.onvrdisplayactivate = function() {
  info.textContent = 'Display activated.';
  reportDisplays();
};
