Attaching Events to Elements

  • Event "listeners" are attached to either an HTML element or the document / window
  • One way to listen for events is adding an onEVENT attribute
    • (Swap out EVENT with the name of the event you want to watch)
  • As the attribute value, call a JavaScript function
<button onclick="doSomething()">
<script>
    function doSomething() {
        // ...
    }
</script>
