Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended.

Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Non-standard: This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The InstallEvent() constructor creates a new InstallEvent object.

options Optional

An object that, in addition of the properties defined in Event(), can contain any custom settings that you want to apply to the event object. Currently no possible options are mandatory, but this has been defined for forward compatibility.

Return value

A new InstallEvent object.


This feature is no more on the standard track.
