Bubbles Yes
Cancelable No
Interface PointerEvent
Event handler property ongotpointercapture

Examples

This example gets a <p> element and listens for the gotpointercapture event. It then calls setPointerCapture() on the element on a pointerdown event, which will trigger gotpointercapture.

const para = document.querySelector('p');

para.addEventListener('gotpointercapture', () => {
  console.log('I\'ve been captured!')
});

para.addEventListener('pointerdown', (event) => {
  para.setPointerCapture(event.pointerId);
});

The same example, using the ongotpointercapture event handler property:

const para = document.querySelector('p');

para.ongotpointercapture = () => {
  console.log('I\'ve been captured!')
};

para.addEventListener('pointerdown', (event) => {
  para.setPointerCapture(event.pointerId);
});
