Definition and Usage

The load() method was deprecated in jQuery version 1.8 and removed in version 3.0. Use the on() or trigger() method instead.

Use .on("load", handler) instead of .load(handler) and .trigger("load") instead of .load().

The load() method attaches an event handler to the load event.

The load event occurs when a specified element has been loaded.

This event works with elements associated with a URL (image, script, frame, iframe), and the window object.

Depending on the browser, the load event may not trigger if the image is cached (Firefox and IE).

Note: There is also a jQuery AJAX method called load(). Which one is called, depends on the parameters.



Parameter Description
function Required. Specifies the function to run when the specified element is done loading
