Newgrounds Wiki: addEventListener


import com.newgrounds.API;
API.addEventListener(event:String, listener:Function[, target:*]);
  • event - The event name to check. This should be one of the constants in APIEvent.
  • listener - The function that will run when the event is triggered.
  • target - The object or movieclip that "this" should refer to from inside the listener function. (Actionscript 2.0 ONLY!!!)

This method adds a listener to the requested event. When the event is triggered, your listener function will run.

See the API Events page for more details.
