Editor triggers a number of custom events which can be useful for taking action when those events occur. For example, it can be useful to know when a form is opened through the open event.

Editor provides three methods for working with Editor events, matching the core jQuery event methods:

  • on() - Listen for events
  • off() - Stop listening for events
  • one() - Listen for a single event.

This on() method is used to start listening for Editor events. Simply pass in the event you wish to listen for and provide a callback function which will be activated when the event is triggered by Editor.
