Sys.UI.DomEvent type Field

Gets the name of the event that was raised.

Syntax

var typeVar = domEventVar.type;

Return Value

A string that represents the name of the event that was raised.

Remarks

Use the type field to determine the name of the event that was raised. For example, if the event was a "click" event, the type field returns "click".

Example

The following example shows how to retrieve the name of the event that occurred.

cs

<script type="text/javascript">
    Sys.UI.DomEvent.addHandler($get("Button1"), "click", processEventInfo);

    function processEventInfo(eventElement) {
        var result = '';
        try {
            result += "altKey = " + eventElement.altKey + "<br/>";
            result += "button = " + eventElement.button + "<br/>";
            result += "keyCode = " + eventElement.keyCode + "<br/>";
            result += "clientX = " + eventElement.clientX + "<br/>";
            result += "clientY = " + eventElement.clientY + "<br/>";
            result += "ctrlKey = " + eventElement.ctrlKey + "<br/>";
            result += "offsetX = " + eventElement.offsetX + "<br/>";
