HTML | DOM onpageshow Event

The DOM onpageshow event in HTML occurs on navigating a webpage by the user.

the onload event does not occur when the page is loaded from the cache and onpageshow event occurs every time the page is loaded otherwise both the events are similar.

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