## Examples

The following example shows how to use the onmoveend event with a movable DIV and have the background color and inner text change when the mouse button is released and the DIV stops moving.

<TITLE>Editing events sample page</TITLE>
// Turn on 2D positioning
// Fires when the onmovestart event is fired
function fnHandleMoveStart() {
  var oDiv = event.srcElement = "green";
  oDiv.innerText = "I Started Moving";
// Function called when the onmoveend event is fired
function fnHandleMoveEnd() {
  var oDiv = event.srcElement = "red";
  oDiv.innerText = "I Stopped";
<BODY onmovestart="fnHandleMoveStart();" onmoveend="fnHandleMoveEnd();">
<DIV style="width:300px;height:100px; color:white; background-color:red;
