Mozilla's getting a new look. What do you think? https://mzl.la/brandsurvey

webglcontextrestored

The webglcontextrestored event of the WebGL API is fired if the user agent restores the drawing buffer for a WebGLRenderingContext object.

Once the context is restored, WebGL resources such as textures and buffers that were created before the context was lost are no longer valid. You need to reinitialize the state of your WebGL application and recreate resources.

Bubbles Yes
Cancelable Yes
Target objects HTMLCanvasElement
Interface WebGLContextEvent

Example

With the help of the WEBGL_lose_context extension, you can simulate the webglcontextrestored event:

var canvas = document.getElementById("canvas");
var gl = canvas.getContext("webgl");

canvas.addEventListener("webglcontextrestored", function(e) {
  console.log(e); 
}, false);

gl.getExtension('WEBGL_lose_context').restoreContext();

// "webglcontextrestored" event is logged.

Inheritance

The webglcontextrestored event implements the WebGLContextEvent interface, which inherits from Event. You can use the properties and methods defined on these interfaces.
