## Examples

This example shows how to use the onstart event on a marquee.

<P>An alert dialog box displays each time the onstart event fires.
<MARQUEE onstart="alert('onstart fired')"
         BEHAVIOR=alernate LOOP=2>Marquee Text</MARQUEE>

View live example



The start method does not cause the onstart event to fire. Initiates the next loop of the marquee contents. To invoke this event, do one of the following:

  • Set the LOOP attribute to 1 or higher.
  • Omit the LOOP attribute so that the marquee loops indefinitely.

  • HTMLAnchorEvents2
  • HTMLAreaEvents2
  • HTMLButtonElementEvents2
  • HTMLControlElementEvents2
  • HTMLDocumentEvents2
  • HTMLElementEvents2
  • HTMLFormElementEvents2
