This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The vrdisplaypresentchange event of the WebVR API is fired when the presenting state of a VR display changes — i.e. goes from presenting to not presenting, or vice versa.

Bubbles No
Cancelable No
Target objects Window
Interface VRDisplayEvent


window.addEventListener('vrdisplaypresentchange', function() {
  if(vrDisplay.isPresenting) {
    info.textContent = 'Display has started presenting.';
  } else {
    info.textContent = 'Display has stopped presenting.';


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