GlobalEventHandlers

The GlobalEventHandlers mixin describes the event handlers common to several interfaces like HTMLElement, Document, or Window. Each of these interfaces can, of course, add more event handlers in addition to the ones listed below.

Note: GlobalEventHandlers is a mixin and not an interface; you can't actually create an object of type GlobalEventHandlers.

Properties

This interface doesn't include any properties except for the event handlers listed below.
