View Full Version : eventListener and addEventListener and jQuery

10-15-2009, 03:23 AM

I am quite confused with the concept of eventListener if I make a js code follow W3C...

I can understand that an event is like 'click', 'load', etc, they are fixed by W3C.

so what is the eventListener actually? I have tried to understand it from a reference book but still cannot get my head around to it!

and addEventListener??

what is the difference between these two?

I dont seem to have this confusion if I jump straight to jQuery! I never came across these two stuff in jQuery. is jQuery abandoning them or something??

Many thanks,
