The IDOMEvent::type property of the event depends on the event. This property can be a standard event type, or it can be a custom user-defined event that you created by using the IDocumentEvent::createEvent and IDOMEvent::initEvent methods.

The IDOMEvent::type property is similar to IHTMLEventObj::type in Windows Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions.
