6: Events Tab
The Events section allows events to be associated with different controls: Page, Field or Group. This is achieved by specifying functionality to execute when a particular event occurs (e.g. onclick for a mouse click). The most common events perform some JavaScript processing when the page is loaded (onload), or when a button is pressed (onclick).
Each Event consists of three parts:
Event Trigger - The trigger that occurs when a user interacts with the Browser. Event Condition(s) - Optional conditional checks to be evaluated to determine if the following Event Actions should be performed. Event Action(s) - Processing of the actual required behaviour, typically in the form of Javascript.
Each of these areas is detailed further in the next section within the context of Fields, but they also apply to Groups and Pages.
