Event Handling

To handle events of Ribbon and its TreeCollection, use the methods of the events module.

Attaching event handlers#

You can add any handler to the events of Ribbon and its TreeCollection. To do this, use the ribbon.events.on() method with the following parameters:

evNamename of the event
evHandleruser-defined event handler

ribbon.events.on("click", function(id,e){    console.log(id,e);});

Several handlers can be attached to one and the same event, and all of them will be executed.

note

The names of the events are case-insensitive.

Detaching event handlers#

There is a simple way of removing an event-handler. Call the ribbon.events.detach() method:

ribbon.events.on("click", function(id,e){    console.log(id,e);});
ribbon.events.detach("click"); 

Calling events#

You do not need to call events of Ribbon and its TreeCollection. Yet, you can call any custom event with the fire() method of the events module:

ribbon.events.fire(evName,[parameters]);
