How to get the url from the event listener in cordova inapp browser event? and close it after reaching a specific url

Here is my code of closing the in app browser after reaching a specific URL in ionic version 1 (BTW i am new to ionic & angularjs). Here my problem is the event raised on “loadstart” is MouseEvent i couldn’t find any url in the object i am getting undefined error on console.log(event.url) . I tried with Loadstop and exit too in the event listener.

   document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);

  function onDeviceReady() {

  function onExit(event) {

      var urlSuccessPage = "";

      if (event.url == urlSuccessPage) {


  var inAppBrowser ="", "_blank", "location=yes");

 inAppBrowser.addEventListener('loadstart', onExit(event));


Thanks in advance

The events are not firing on loadstar & loadstop event of InAppBrowser on time but calling after closing browser . please give suggestion to get events url on browser window and I also used _blank in Url ?

let yourUrl;
let theOtherUrl;
const browser: InAppBrowserObject = this.iab.create(yourUrl, "_blank", "hidden=no,location=no,clearsessioncache=yes,clearcache=yes"); //no spaces allowed in Options!

    browser.on('loadstart').subscribe((e) => { 
      if (e.url == theOtherUrl) {
