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

Window.onvrdisplaypresentchange

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 onvrdisplaypresentchange property of the Window interface represents an event handler that will run when the presenting state of a VR display changes — i.e. goes from presenting to not presenting, or vice versa (when the vrdisplaypresentchange event fires).

The event object is of type VRDisplayEvent.

Syntax

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

Examples

The presenting state of a VRDisplay can be checked using the VRDisplay.isPresenting property.

window.onvrdisplaypresentchange = function() {
  if(vrDisplay.isPresenting) {
    info.textContent = 'Display has started presenting.';
  } else {
    info.textContent = 'Display has stopped presenting.';
  }
};
