Method Detail

The view attribute identifies the AbstractView from which the event was generated.


getDetail

int getDetail()
Specifies some detail information about the Event, depending on the type of event.


initUIEvent

void initUIEvent(String typeArg,
                 boolean canBubbleArg,
                 boolean cancelableArg,
                 org.w3c.dom.views.AbstractView viewArg,
                 int detailArg)
The initUIEvent method is used to initialize the value of a UIEvent created through the DocumentEvent interface. This method may only be called before the UIEvent has been dispatched via the dispatchEvent method, though it may be called multiple times during that phase if necessary. If called multiple times, the final invocation takes precedence.

Parameters:
typeArg - Specifies the event type.
canBubbleArg - Specifies whether or not the event can bubble.
cancelableArg - Specifies whether or not the event's default action can be prevented.
viewArg - Specifies the Event's AbstractView.
detailArg - Specifies the Event's detail.
