Events available for YAHOO.util.Event.addListener

Posted on 2008-10-03
Last Modified: 2008-11-18
I am looking for a list of possible events availabe for the YAHOO.util.Event.addListener method, i.e., "click".  I have the following code:

YAHOO.util.Event.addListener("do", "click", function(e) {..........}

but if I try

YAHOO.util.Event.addListener(window, "load", function(e) {........}

it doesn't work when the window loads.  What's going on?

Where do you place the code? I placed the code in the snippet below in the <head> of the web page and it properly displayed the alert.
<script type="text/javascript">
YAHOO.util.Event.addListener(window, "load", function(e) {alert("Hello world!");});

Open in new window
