Its an event procedure when you click it fires click events that can call the event function which may be any things defined by programmer.

Any page that uses loadtime scripting is going to be virtually impossible to trace the event tree.  You may find event handlers in the Document Object, but the triggers can be anywhere, and in some cases an action may trigger more than one event and the bubbling order may not be the same.  You may even get externals firing events for a given trigger because a trigger could fire an Ajax event that loads in a script that fires an additional event as soon as it is loaded.
