Interface IDocumentEvent

  • All Known Implementing Classes:
    Document, HTMLDocument, SVGDocument, SVGSVGElement

    public interface IDocumentEvent

    The IDocumentEvent interface provides a mechanism by which the user can create an Event of a type supported by the implementation.

    It is expected that the IDocumentEvent interface will be implemented on the same object which implements the Document interface in an implementation which supports the Event model.

      • createEvent

        Event createEvent(String eventType)

        Creates an Event of a type supported by the implementation.

        eventType - The eventType parameter specifies the type of Event interface to be created.

        If the Event interface specified is supported by the implementation this method will return a new Event of the interface type requested. If the Event is to be dispatched via the EventTarget.DispatchEvent method the appropriate Event.InitEvent method must be called after creation in order to initialize the Event's values.

        The CreateEvent method is used in creating Events when it is either inconvenient or unnecessary for the user to create an Event themselves. In cases where the implementation provided Event is insufficient, users may supply their own Event implementations for use with the EventTarget.DispatchEvent method.
