)
Function static

Provided by the event-delegate module.

Defined in event/js/delegate.js:183

Available since 3.2.0

Compiles a selector string into a filter function to identify whether Nodes along the parent axis of an event's target should trigger event notification.

This function is memoized, so previously compiled filter functions are returned if the same selector string is provided.

This function may be useful when defining synthetic events for delegate handling.

Hosted as a property of the delegate method (e.g. Y.delegate.compileFilter).

Parameters:

  • selector String

    the selector string to base the filtration on

Returns:

define

(
  • type
  • config
  • force
)
SyntheticEvent static

Provided by the event-synthetic module.

Defined in event/js/synthetic.js:687

Available since 3.1.0

Defines a new event in the DOM event system. Implementers are responsible for monitoring for a scenario whereby the event is fired. A notifier object is provided to the functions identified below. When the criteria defining the event are met, call notifier.fire( [args] ); to execute event subscribers.

The first parameter is the name of the event. The second parameter is a configuration object which define the behavior of the event system when the new event is subscribed to or detached from. The methods that should be defined in this configuration object are on, detach, delegate, and detachDelegate. You are free to define any other methods or properties needed to define your event. Be aware, however, that since the object is used to subclass SyntheticEvent, you should avoid method names used by SyntheticEvent unless your intention is to override the default behavior.

This is a list of properties and methods that you can or should specify in the configuration object:

on
function (node, subscription, notifier) The implementation logic for subscription. Any special setup you need to do to create the environment for the event being fired--E.g. native DOM event subscriptions. Store subscription related objects and state on the subscription object. When the criteria have been met to fire the synthetic event, call notifier.fire(e). See Notifier's fire() method for details about what to pass as parameters.
detach
function (node, subscription, notifier) The implementation logic for cleaning up a detached subscription. E.g. detach any DOM subscriptions added in on.
delegate
function (node, subscription, notifier, filter) The implementation logic for subscription via Y.delegate or node.delegate. The filter is typically either a selector string or a function. You can use Y.delegate.compileFilter(selectorString) to create a filter function from a selector string if needed. The filter function expects an event object as input and should output either null, a matching Node, or an array of matching Nodes. Otherwise, this acts like on DOM event subscriptions. Store subscription related objects and information on the subscription object. When the criteria have been met to fire the synthetic event, call notifier.fire(e) as noted above.
detachDelegate
function (node, subscription, notifier) The implementation logic for cleaning up a detached delegate subscription. E.g. detach any DOM delegate subscriptions added in delegate.
publishConfig
(Object) The configuration object that will be used to instantiate the underlying CustomEvent. See Notifier's fire method for details.
processArgs

function (argArray, fromDelegate) Optional method to extract any additional arguments from the subscription signature. Using this allows on or delegate signatures like node.on("hover", overCallback, outCallback).

When processing an atypical argument signature, make sure the args array is returned to the normal signature before returning from the function. For example, in the "hover" example above, the outCallback needs to be spliced out of the array. The expected signature of the args array for on() subscriptions is:

                         [type, callback, target, contextOverride, argN...]
                     

And for delegate():

                         [type, callback, target, filter, contextOverride, argN...]
                     

where target is the node the event is being subscribed for. You can see these signatures documented for Y.on() and Y.delegate() respectively.

Whatever gets returned from the function will be stored on the subscription object under subscription._extra.

subMatch

function (sub, args) Compares a set of subscription arguments against a Subscription object to determine if they match. The default implementation compares the callback function against the second argument passed to Y.on(...) or node.detach(...) etc.

Parameters:

  • type String

    the name of the event

  • config Object

    the prototype definition for the new event (see above)

  • force Boolean

    override an existing event (use with caution)

Returns:

SyntheticEvent:

the subclass implementation instance created to handle event subscriptions of this type

defineOutside

(
  • event
  • name
)
static

Provided by the event-outside module.

Defined in event/js/outside.js:48

Defines a new outside event to correspond with the given DOM event.

By default, the created synthetic event name will be the name of the event with "outside" appended (e.g. "click" becomes "clickoutside"). If you want a different name for the created Event, pass it as a second argument like so: Y.Event.defineOutside(eventType, "yonderclick").

Parameters:

  • event String

    DOM event

  • name String

    (optional) custom outside event name

delegate

(
  • type
  • fn
  • el
  • filter
  • context
  • args
)
EventHandle static

Provided by the event-delegate module.

Defined in event/js/delegate.js:16

Sets up event delegation on a container element. The delegated event will use a supplied selector or filtering function to test if the event references at least one node that should trigger the subscription callback.

Selector string filters will trigger the callback if the event originated from a node that matches it or is contained in a node that matches it. Function filters are called for each Node up the parent axis to the subscribing container node, and receive at each level the Node and the event object. The function should return true (or a truthy value) if that Node should trigger the subscription callback. Note, it is possible for filters to match multiple Nodes for a single event. In this case, the delegate callback will be executed for each matching Node.

For each matching Node, the callback will be executed with its 'this' object set to the Node matched by the filter (unless a specific context was provided during subscription), and the provided event's currentTarget will also be set to the matching Node. The containing Node from which the subscription was originally made can be referenced as e.container.

Parameters:

  • type String

    the event type to delegate

  • fn Function

    the callback function to execute. This function will be provided the event object for the delegated event.

  • el String | Node

    the element that is the delegation container

  • filter String | Function

    a selector that must match the target of the event or a function to test target and its parents for a match

  • context Object

    optional argument that specifies what 'this' refers to.

  • args Object multiple

    0..n additional arguments to pass on to the callback function. These arguments will be added after the event object.

Returns:

EventHandle:

the detach handle

  • node
  • subscription
  • notifier
  • filter
)
public static

Provided by the event-tap module.

Defined in event/js/tap.js:126

Detaches all event subscriptions set up by the event-tap module

Parameters:

detach

(
  • type

Parameters:

  • type String

    the type of event to remove.

  • fn Function

    the method the event invokes. If fn is undefined, then all event handlers for the type of event are removed.

  • el String | HTMLElement | Array | NodeList | EventHandle

Parameters:

flick

(
  • cb
  • point
  • axis
  • distance
  • duration
)

The "flick" gesture is a specialized "move" that has some velocity and the movement always runs either x or y axis. The velocity is calculated with "distance" and "duration" arguments. If the calculated velocity is below than the minimum velocity, the given duration will be ignored and new duration will be created to make a valid flick gesture.

Parameters:

  • cb Function

    The callback to execute when the gesture simulation is completed.

  • point Array

    A point(relative to the top left corner of the target node element) where the flick gesture should start. The default is the center of the taget node.

String:

the resulting id of the element

getEvent

(
  • e
  • el
)
Event static

Finds the event in the window object, the caller's arguments, or in the arguments of another method in the callstack. This is executed automatically for events registered through the event manager, so the implementer should not normally need to execute this function at all.

the custom event wrapper for the DOM event(s)

move

(
  • cb
  • path
  • duration
)

The "move" gesture simulate the movement of any direction between the straight line of start and end point for the given duration. The path argument is an object with "point", "xdist" and "ydist" properties. The "point" property is an array with x and y coordinations(relative to the top left corner of the target node element) while "xdist" and "ydist" properties are used for the distance along the x and y axis. A negative distance number can be used to drag either left or up direction.

If no arguments are given, it will simulate the default move, which is moving 200 pixels from the center of the element to the positive X-axis direction for 1 sec.

Parameters:

  • fn Function

    what to execute when the element is found.

  • p_obj Object

    an optional object to be passed back as a parameter to fn.

  • p_override Boolean | Object

    If set to true, fn will execute in the context of p_obj, if set to an object it will execute in the context of that object

The callback is executed with a single parameter: the custom object parameter, if provided.

Parameters:

  • id String

    the id of the element to look for.

  • fn Function

    what to execute when the element is ready.

    A radius of end circle where 2 fingers will be on when the pinch or spread gestures are completed. This parameter is required.

  • duration Number

    A duration of the gesture in millisecond.

  • start Number

    A start angle(0 degree at 12 o'clock) where the gesture should start. Default is 0.

simulate

(
  • target
  • type
  • options
)
static

Provided by the event-simulate module.

Defined in event-simulate/js/event-simulate.js:893

Simulates the event or gesture with the given name on a target.

Parameters:

  • target HTMLElement

    The DOM element that's the target of the event.

  • type String

    The type of event or name of the supported gesture to simulate (i.e., "click", "doubletap", "flick").

  • options Object

    (Optional) Extra options to copy onto the event object. For gestures, options are used to refine the gesture behavior.

simulateGesture

(
  • node
  • name
  • [options]
  • [cb]
)
static

Simulates the higher user level gesture of the given name on a target. This method generates a set of low level touch events(Apple specific gesture events as well for the iOS platforms) asynchronously. Note that gesture simulation is relying on Y.Event.simulate() method to generate the touch events under the hood. The Y.Event.simulate() method itself is a synchronous method.

Users are suggested to use Node.simulateGesture() method which basically calls this method internally. Supported gestures are tap, doubletap, press, move, flick, pinch and rotate.

The pinch gesture is used to simulate the pinching and spreading of two fingers. During a pinch simulation, rotation is also possible. Essentially pinch and rotate simulations share the same base implementation to allow both pinching and rotation at the same time. The only difference is pinch requires start and end option properties while rotate requires rotation option property.

The pinch and rotate gestures can be described as placing 2 fingers along a circle. Pinching and spreading can be described by start and end circles while rotation occurs on a single circle. If the radius of the start circle is greater than the end circle, the gesture becomes a pinch, otherwise it is a spread spread.

Parameters:

  • node HTMLElement | Node

    The YUI node or HTML element that's the target of the event.

  • name String

    The name of the supported gesture to simulate. The supported gesture name is one of "tap", "doubletap", "press", "move", "flick", "pinch" and "rotate".

Example:

var node = Y.one("#target");
            
            // double tap example
            node.simulateGesture("doubletap", function() {
                // my callback function
            });
            
            // flick example from the center of the node, move 50 pixels down for 50ms)
            node.simulateGesture("flick", {
                axis: y,
                distance: -100
                duration: 50
            }, function() {
                // my callback function
            });
            
            // simulate rotating a node 75 degrees counter-clockwise
            node.simulateGesture("rotate", {
                rotation: -75
            });
            
            // simulate a pinch and a rotation at the same time.
            // fingers start on a circle of radius 100 px, placed at top/bottom
            // fingers end on a circle of radius 50px, placed at right/left
            node.simulateGesture("pinch", {
                r1: 100,
                r2: 50,
                start: 0
                rotation: 90
            });

tap

(
  • cb
  • point
  • times
  • hold
  • delay
)

The "tap" gesture can be used for various single touch point gestures such as single tap, N number of taps, long press. The default is a single tap.

Parameters:

  • cb Function

    The callback to execute when the gesture simulation is completed.

  • point Array

    A point(relative to the top left corner of the target node element) where the tap gesture should start. The default is the center of the taget node.

  • times Number

    The number of taps. Default is 1.

  • hold Number

    The hold time in milliseconds between "touchstart" and "touchend" event generation. Default is 10ms.

  • delay Number

    The time gap in millisecond between taps if this gesture has more than 1 tap. Default is 10ms.

Properties

_avail

Unknown private static

onAvailable listeners

_disabledRE

RegExp protected

Provided by the event-delegate module.

Defined in event/js/delegate.js:209

Available since 3.8.1

Regex to test for disabled elements during filtering. This is only relevant to IE to normalize behavior with other browsers, which swallow events that occur to disabled elements. IE fires the event from the parent element instead of the original target, though it does preserve event.srcElement as the disabled element. IE also supports disabled on <a>, but the event still bubbles, so it acts more like e.preventDefault() plus styling. That issue is not handled here because other browsers fire the event on the <a>, so delegate is supported in both cases.

_dri

Unknown private static

document readystate poll handle

_el_events

Unknown private static

Custom event wrapper map DOM events. Key is Element uid stamp. Each item is a hash of custom event wrappers as provided in the _wrappers collection. This provides the infrastructure for getListeners.

_interval

Unknown private static

poll handle

_loadComplete

Boolean private static

True after the onload event has fired

_retryCount

Unknown private static

The number of times to poll after window.onload. This number is increased if additional late-bound handlers are requested after the page load.

_wrappers

CustomEvent private static

Custom event wrappers for DOM events. Key is 'event:' + Element uid stamp + event type

DOMReady

Boolean static

True when the document is initially usable

lastError

Error static

addListener/removeListener can throw errors in unexpected scenarios. These errors are suppressed, the method returns false, and this property is set

POLL_INTERVAL

Int final static

The poll interval in milliseconds

POLL_RETRYS

Int final static

The number of times we should look for elements that are not in the DOM at the time the event is requested after the document has been loaded. The default is 1000@amp;40 ms, so it will poll for 40 seconds or until all outstanding handlers are bound (whichever comes first).

Events

tap

Provided by the event-tap module.

Defined in event/js/tap.js:50

Sets up a "tap" event, that is fired on touch devices in response to a tap event (finger down, finder up). This event can be used instead of listening for click events which have a 500ms delay on most touch devices. This event can also be listened for using node.delegate().

Event Payload:

  • type String

    "tap"

  • fn Function

    The method the event invokes. It receives the event facade of the underlying DOM event.
