JSX Attributes

on:* and oncapture:*

Edit this page

For events with capital letters, or if you need to attach event handlers directly to a DOM element instead of optimized delegating via the document, use on:* in place of on*.

<div on:DOMContentLoaded={(e) => console.log("Welcome!")} />

This directly attaches an event handler (via addEventListener) to the div.

Another special attribute is oncapture:*, which attaches the event handler with the option capture: true, meaning that the event will get captured on the way down the DOM tree, instead of waiting for it to bubble up from its descendants. This results in calling this event handler before descendant handlers (in particular, before those descendants could potentially cancel bubbling via stopPropagation), and enables the handler to stop the event from descending via stopPropagation.
