Definition and Usage
The onhashchange event occurs when there has been changes to the anchor part (begins with a '#' symbol) of the current URL.
An example of what an anchor part actually is: Assume that the current URL is
http://www.example.com/test.htm#part2 - The anchor part of this URL would be #part2.
To invoke this event, you can:
- Change the anchor part by setting the location.hash or location.href property of the Location Object
- Navigate to the current page with a different bookmark (Use the "back" or "forward" buttons)
- Click on a link to a bookmark anchor
The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the event.
Note: The addEventListener() method is not supported in Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions.
