Events in Kontrast
Many objects in Kontrast emit events. You can subscribe to events
addEventListener functions on the object,
providing the name of the event and a custom function that should be
called whenever the event is emitted (or
Note that the name of the function
deliberately chosen to be the same as the function used for DOM
manipulations (see the corresponding MDN page on
EventTarget.addEventListener()). However, in contrast to the DOM version of the function, an
exception is thrown if the event name does not exist.
Please refer to the tutorial for an introductory example on how to use events.
The names and descriptions of available events can be found in the documentation for each object and in the reference index.
addEventListener(eventName: string, callback: function)Registers the callback function as an event listener for the specified event name.
clearEventListener(eventName: string)Remove all event listener callbacks associated with the event name.
