HTML | DOM fullscreenerror Event
  • Last Updated : 24 Jul, 2019

The HTML DOM fullscreenerror event occurs when an element can not be viewed in fullscreen mode, even if it has been requested.

  • In HTML:
    <element onfullscreenerror="myScript">
  • In JavaScript:
    object.onfullscreenerror = function(){myScript};
  • In JavaScript, using the addEventListener() method:
    object.addEventListener("fullscreenerror", myScript);

Using prefixes for cross-browser code:

    document.addEventListener("fullscreenerror", function() {
  • Firefox:

  • Chrome, Safari and Opera:

    document.addEventListener("webkitfullscreenerror", function() {
  • Edge:
