public class EventImpl
extends java.lang.Object
implements Event

EventImpl is an implementation of the basic "generic" DOM Level 2 Event object. It may be subclassed by more specialized event sets. Note that in our implementation, events are re-dispatchable (dispatch clears the stopPropagation and preventDefault flags before it starts); I believe that is the DOM's intent but I don't see an explicit statement to this effect.

Method Summary
 boolean getBubbles()
          Used to indicate whether or not an event is a bubbling event.

 long getTimeStamp()
          Used to specify the time (in milliseconds relative to the epoch) at which the event was created.
 java.lang.String getType()
          The name of the event (case-insensitive).
 void initEvent(java.lang.String eventTypeArg, boolean canBubbleArg, boolean cancelableArg)
          The DOM doesn't deal with constructors, so instead we have an initializer call to set most of the read-only fields.

          Prevents any default processing built into the target node from occurring.
 void stopPropagation()
          Causes exit from in-progress event dispatch before the next currentTarget is selected.

Method Detail

initEvent

public void initEvent(java.lang.String eventTypeArg,
                      boolean canBubbleArg,
                      boolean cancelableArg)
The DOM doesn't deal with constructors, so instead we have an initializer call to set most of the read-only fields. The others are set, and reset, by the event subsystem during dispatch.

Note that init() -- and the subclass-specific initWhatever() calls -- may be reinvoked. At least one initialization is required; repeated initializations overwrite the event with new values of their parameters.

Specified by:
initEvent in interface Event
Following copied from interface: org.w3c.dom.events.Event
Parameters:
eventTypeArgSpecifies - the event type. This type may be any event type currently defined in this specification or a new event type.. The string must be an XML name. Any new event type must not begin with any upper, lower, or mixed case version of the string "DOM". This prefix is reserved for future DOM event sets. It is also strongly recommended that third parties adding their own events use their own prefix to avoid confusion and lessen the probability of conflicts with other new events.
canBubbleArgSpecifies - whether or not the event can bubble.
cancelableArgSpecifies - whether or not the event's default action can be prevented.

getBubbles

public boolean getBubbles()
Description copied from interface: Event
Used to indicate whether or not an event is a bubbling event. If the event can bubble the value is true, else the value is false.
Specified by:
getBubbles in interface Event
Returns:
true iff this Event is of a class and type which supports bubbling. In the generic case, this is True.

getCancelable

public boolean getCancelable()
Description copied from interface: Event
Used to indicate whether or not an event can have its default action prevented. If the default action can be prevented the value is true, else the value is false.
Specified by:
getCancelable in interface Event
Returns:
true iff this Event is of a class and type which (a) has a Default Behavior in this DOM, and (b)allows cancellation (blocking) of that behavior. In the generic case, this is False.

getCurrentTarget

public EventTarget getCurrentTarget()
Description copied from interface: Event
Used to indicate the EventTarget whose EventListeners are currently being processed. This is particularly useful during capturing and bubbling.
Specified by:
getCurrentTarget in interface Event
Returns:
the Node (EventTarget) whose EventListeners are currently being processed. During capture and bubble phases, this may not be the target node.

getEventPhase

public short getEventPhase()
Description copied from interface: Event
Used to indicate which phase of event flow is currently being evaluated.
Specified by:
getEventPhase in interface Event
Returns:
the current processing phase for this event -- CAPTURING_PHASE, AT_TARGET, BUBBLING_PHASE. (There may be an internal DEFAULT_PHASE as well, but the users won't see it.)

getTarget

public EventTarget getTarget()
Description copied from interface: Event
Used to indicate the EventTarget to which the event was originally dispatched.
Specified by:
getTarget in interface Event
Returns:
the EventTarget (Node) to which the event was originally dispatched.

getType

public java.lang.String getType()
Description copied from interface: Event
The name of the event (case-insensitive). The name must be an XML name.
Specified by:
getType in interface Event
Returns:
event name as a string

getTimeStamp

public long getTimeStamp()
Description copied from interface: Event
Used to specify the time (in milliseconds relative to the epoch) at which the event was created. Due to the fact that some systems may not provide this information the value of timeStamp may be not available for all events. When not available, a value of 0 will be returned. Examples of epoch time are the time of the system start or 0:0:0 UTC 1st January 1970.
Specified by:
getTimeStamp in interface Event

stopPropagation

public void stopPropagation()
Causes exit from in-progress event dispatch before the next currentTarget is selected. Replaces the preventBubble() and preventCapture() methods which were present in early drafts; they may be reintroduced in future levels of the DOM.
Specified by:
stopPropagation in interface Event

preventDefault

public void preventDefault()
Prevents any default processing built into the target node from occurring.
Specified by:
preventDefault in interface Event
