External XUI event handler code

Postby liz » Mon Jun 15, 2015 5:06 pm

Example by Rob In der Maur of how to place event handler code for a XUI widget outside the XUI document
Last Updated: 2006-07-26

In your code just get hold of the XUI element you want add event handler to, define event handler functionality (what needs to be done when button clicked), set up listener and attach it to the XUI element.

Code: Select all

// get handle to ok button by its id; xuidoc is the document containing the XUI
var okbtn = xuidoc.getElementById("okButton");   

// define what needs to be done when ok button clicked
function handleClickEvent(e) {
  Application.alert("Pressed OK button");

// set up event handling
o = { handleEvent: handleClickEvent };

// set up listener with the handler as parameter
var okbtnlistener = Packages.org.w3c.dom.events.EventListener(o);

// attach event listener to ok button
okbtn.addEventListener("DOMActivate", okbtnlistener, false);
