Window: afterprint event

The afterprint event is fired after the associated document has started printing or the print preview has been closed.

The beforeprint and afterprint events allow pages to change their content before printing starts (perhaps to remove a banner, for example) and then revert those changes after printing has completed. In general, you should prefer the use of a @media print CSS at-rule, but it may be necessary to use these events in some cases.

Syntax

Use the event name in methods like addEventListener(), or set an event handler property.

addEventListener('afterprint', event => { });
onafterprint = event => { };

Event type

A generic Event.

Examples

Using addEventListener():

window.addEventListener('afterprint', (event) => {
  console.log('After print');
});

Using the onafterprint event handler property:

window.onafterprint = (event) => {
  console.log('After print');
};
