  • function is the name of a user-defined function, without the () suffix or any parameters, or an anonymous function declaration, such as function(event) {...}. An event handler always has one single parameter, containing the event, here of type Event.


pc.onpeeridentity = function(ev) { alert("onpeeridentity event detected!"); };
