vrdisplaydeactivate

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 vrdisplaydeactivate event of the WebVR API is fired when a VR display can no longer be presented to, for example if an HMD has gone into standby or sleep mode due to a period of inactivity.

Bubbles No
Cancelable No
Target objects Window
Interface VRDisplayEvent

Examples

window.addEventListener('vrdisplaydeactivate', function() {
  info.textContent = 'Display deactivated.';
  reportDisplays();
});

Inheritance

The vrdisplaydeactivate event implements the VRDisplayEvent interface, which inherits from Event — its event object therefore has available the properties and methods defined on both these interfaces.
