Adding a "hashChange" event by "addEventListener"?

Recommended Posts

I tried to add a "hashChange" event to the body element using the "onload" event, but nothing happens when the hash changes:

document.addEventListener("hashChange", function() {
  alert(location.hash);
});

But t works when I add

onhashchange="alert(location.hash)"

to the body element? Why?

I think its because you put a capital "C" on "Change"

I thought the opposite way and changed "c" to "C" because it also didn't work.

 

Never mind, I found the error. Instead of "document.addEventListener" you must use window.addEventListener instead...
