On

Simple event handling functions. Based on dojo/on.

Usage

on

The on module is used to listen for events.

define(function(require){
  var on = require('frozen-on');

  var button = document.createElement('button');

  on(button, 'click', function(e){
    // do something with event
  });
});

Calling on returns an object containing a remove method, which removes the event handler.

define(function(require){
  var on = require('frozen-on');

  var button = document.createElement('button');

  var remover = on(button, 'click', function(e){
    // do something with event
    remover.remove();
  });
});

It can use extension events, also.

define(function(require){
  var on = require('frozen-on');
  var tap = require('dojo/gesture/tap');

  var button = document.createElement('button');

  on(button, tap, function(e){
    // do something with event
  });
});

on.once

on.once provides a way to listen to an event one time (automatically removes the handler after first call).

define(function(require){
  var on = require('frozen-on');

  var button = document.createElement('button');

  on.once(button, 'click', function(e){
    // do something with event
  });
});

on.pausable

on.pausable behaves as a normal on call, but the returned object has pause and resume methods, too.

Calling pause stops the event handler callback from being called, while calling resume starts it again.

define(function(require){
  var on = require('frozen-on');

  var button = document.createElement('button');

  var pauser = on.pausable(button, 'click', function(e){
    // do something with event
    pauser.pause();
    setTimeout(function(){
      pauser.resume();
    }, 1500);
  });
});

emit

The emit module is used for publishing events.

define(function(require){
  var emit = require('frozen-on/emit');

  var button = document.createElement('button');

  emit(button, 'click', {
    cancelable: true,
    bubbles: true,
    screenX: 33,
    screenY: 44
  });
});

Evented

A Class that exposes on and emit methods on the object.

var Evented = require('frozen-on/Evented');

var obj = new Evented();

obj.on('open', function(e){
  // do something with event
});

obj.emit('open', {name: 'foo'});
