Input event

oninput - executes JavaScript code when the value of the HTML element is changed. This can be done by e.g typing something manually in textarea or by pasting some text to the input.

Change event

onchange - executes JavaScript code when the state or the contents of an element have changed. This can be done by e.g checking/unchecking radio input (or checkbox), losing focus of the textarea, etc.


Notice that oninput event triggers when you input the text and onchange event triggers when the input loses the focus.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>

    function myFunction(input) {
      console.log(`Current ${} value: ` + input.value);

  <span>Type something:</span>
  <input type="text" id="input1" oninput="myFunction(this)">
  <span>Type something:</span>
  <input type="text" id="input2" onchange="myFunction(this)">
