    pageshow

    The pageshow event is fired when a session history entry is being traversed to. (This includes back/forward as well as initial page-showing after the onload event.)

    Examples

    The following will log info about the pageshow event, which is fired on back/forward, not just after onload:

    window.addEventListener('pageshow', function(event) {
        console.log('pageshow:');
        console.log(event);
    });

    While not best-practice, you can also add the event as an attribute on the body tag, same as onload:

    <body onload="myonload()" onpageshow="mypageshowcode()">
