addEventListener

Summary

Adds an event listener for user-handling of KeymanWeb events.

Syntax

keyman.addEventListener(event, func);

Parameters

event
Type: string
The name of an event to be generated by the keyman object. Please see the Events section for more details and examples.
func
Type: function
A function to be called when the event is raised. This function should expect a single parameter, which will be set to the originally-generated event object.

Return Value

boolean
Returns true if successful, otherwise false.

Description

Note: Standard HTML element events for the KeymanWeb element (focus, blur, keydown, keypress, etc.) may be intercepted and used to modify the user interface as necessary. User-defined event handlers should normally return true to allow other event handling to be processed normally.

Example

keyman.addEventListener('focus', function(e) {
  console.log("Now handling input for control " + e.target "!");
});
