Module type
Class type

DOM events.

Event types

type 'a type'

The type for events which can pose as values of type 'a. See the predefined event types.

module Type : sig ... end

Event types.

type void = Type.void type'

The type for events that do not expose further data.


type target

The type for EventTarget abiding objects.

type init

The type for event initialisation objects.

val init : ?bubbles:bool -> ?cancelable:bool -> ?composed:bool -> unit -> init

init is an event initialisation object with given parameters.

type 'a t

The type for Event objects which can pose as events of type 'a.

type 'a event

See t.

val create : ?init:init -> 'a type' -> 'a t

create ?init t is an event of type t initialised with init.

val as_type : 'a t -> 'a

as_type e specialises the event to its type.

val type' : 'a t -> 'a type'

type' e is the type of e.

val target : 'a t -> target

target e is the target on which e was originally dispatched.

val current_target : 'a t -> target

current_target e is the target currently handling e. See also target.

val composed_path : 'a t -> target list

composed_path e are the targets on which listeners will be invoked.

val event_phase : 'a t -> [ `None | `Capturing | `At_target | `Bubbling ]

event_phase e is e's event phase, see here for details. This picture may help.

val bubbles : 'a t -> bool

bubbles e is true whether the event can bubble up through the DOM.

val stop_propagation : 'a t -> unit

stop_propagation e prevents the propagation of e in the DOM, remaining handlers of e on the current_target are still invoked use stop_immediate_propagation to stop these. The user agent's default action for e still occurs, use prevent_default to prevent that.

val stop_immediate_propagation : 'a t -> unit

stop_immediate_propagation e is like stop_propagation but it also prevents the invocation of other handlers for e that may be listening on the current_target.

val cancelable : 'a t -> bool

cancelable e indicates whether e can be cancelled, that is whether prevent_default will succeed.

val prevent_default : 'a t -> unit

prevent_default e prevents the user agent's default action for e to happen. This may have no effect if cancelable is false, see default_prevented.

val default_prevented : 'a t -> bool

default_prevented e is true indicates whether a call to prevent_default succeded.

val composed : 'a t -> bool

composed e is the composed property of e.

val is_trusted : 'a t -> bool

is_trusted e is true if e was dispatched by the user agent and false otherwise.

val timestamp_ms : 'a t -> float

timestamp_ms e is the time in milleseconds since the POSIX epoch when the event was created.

val dispatch : 'a t -> target -> bool

dispatch e t dispatches event e on target t.


type listen_opts

The type for listening options.

val listen_opts : ?capture:bool -> ?once:bool -> ?passive:bool -> unit -> listen_opts

listen_opts () are options for listen.

  • capture indicates if events are listened before being dispatched to descendents of the target in the DOM tree. Defaults to false.
  • once indicates at most a single event will be listened. If true the listener is automatically removed when invoked. Defaults to false.
  • passive indicates the listener never calls prevent_default on the event. If it does nothing will happen (except maybe a console warning). Defaults to false.
type listener

The type for event listeners. See listen.

val listen : ?opts:listen_opts -> 'a type' -> ('a t -> unit) -> target -> listener

listen ~opts type' f t is a listener listening for events of type type' on target t with function f and options opts (see listen_opts for defaults). The listener can be used to unlisten, if you don't need to, you can just `ignore` the result.

val unlisten : listener -> unit

unlisten l stops the listening done by l.

val next : ?capture:bool -> 'a type' -> target -> 'a t Fut.t

next type' t is a future that determines the next event of type type' on target t. For capture see listen_opts.
