Event Object Properties

Although event handlers in the DHTML Object Model do not receive parameters directly, a handler can query the event object for the following event properties.

Available Properties

srcElement Gets or sets the object that fired the event.
type Gets or sets the event name from the event object.

Refer to the specific event object for additional event properties.


The event fires once for each repetition of the timeline, excluding the first full cycle. Therefore, the onrepeat event fires repeat–1 times unless it is stopped by other dependencies before completion. This event fires only if the repeat or repeatDur property is set directly on the element. This event does not fire on child elements that have the repeat or repeatDur property set only on their parent elements.

Applies To

t:AUDIO, t:IMG, t:MEDIA, t:PAR, t:SEQ, time, t:VIDEO
