public interface DocumentEvent
DocumentEventinterface provides a mechanism by which the user can create an Event of a type supported by the implementation. It is expected that the
DocumentEventinterface will be implemented on the same object which implements the
Documentinterface in an implementation which supports the Event model.
See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 Events Specification.
Event createEvent(String eventType) throws DOMException
eventTypeparameter specifies the type of
Eventinterface to be created. If the
Eventinterface specified is supported by the implementation this method will return a new
Eventof the interface type requested. If the
Eventis to be dispatched via the
dispatchEventmethod the appropriate event init method must be called after creation in order to initialize the
Event's values. As an example, a user wishing to synthesize some kind of
createEventwith the parameter "UIEvents". The
initUIEventmethod could then be called on the newly created
UIEventto set the specific type of UIEvent to be dispatched and set its context information.The
createEventmethod is used in creating
Events when it is either inconvenient or unnecessary for the user to create an
Eventthemselves. In cases where the implementation provided
Eventis insufficient, users may supply their own
Eventimplementations for use with the
DOMException- NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: Raised if the implementation does not support the type of
