Class EventListener

   +--org.w3c.dom.events.EventListener

public abstract class EventListener
extends Object
The EventListener interface is the primary method for handling events. Users implement the EventListener interface and register their listener on an EventTarget using the EventTarget.addEventListener(String, EventListener, Boolean) method. The users should also remove their EventListener from its EventTarget after they have completed using the listener.

When a Node is copied using the Node.cloneNode(Boolean) method the EventListeners attached to the source Node are not attached to the copied Node. If the user wishes the same EventListeners to be added to the newly created copy the user must add them manually.

Introduced in DOM Level 2.

Note that this object is implemented and supported by the web browser and results of its use may vary.
