Definition and Usage
The oncut event occurs when the user cuts the content of an element.
Note: Although the oncut event is supported by all HTML elements, it is not actually possible to cut the content of, for example, a <p> element, UNLESS the element has set contenteditable to "true" (See "More Examples" below).
Tip: The oncut event is mostly used on <input> elements with type="text".
Tip: There are three ways to cut the content of an element:
- Press CTRL + X
- Select "Cut" from the Edit menu in your browser
- Right click to display the context menu and select the "Cut" command
Note: The addEventListener() method is not supported in Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions.
