The XRInputSourcesChangeEvent() constructor creates and returns a new XRInputSourcesChangeEvent object, representing an update to the list of available WebXR input devices. You won't typically call this constructor yourself, as these events are created and sent to you by the WebXR system.


newInputSourcesChangeEvent = new XRInputSourcesChangeEvent(type, eventInitDict);


A DOMString indicating the type of event which has occurred. This string must always be inputsourceschange.
An object conforming to the XRInputSourcesChangeEventInit dictionary, prodividing the initial values for the event.

Return value

A newly-created XRInputSourcesChangeEvent object configured based upon the input parameters provided.

Event types

Delivered to the XRSession when the set of input devices available to it changes.


The following snippet of code creates a new XRInputSourcesChangeEvent object indicating that a single new input source, described by an XRInputSource object named newInputSource, has been added to the system.

let iscEvent = new XRInputSourcesChangeEvent("inputsourceschange", { session: xrSession,
                           added: [newInputSource], removed: [] });
