Description

Generally you don't need to know programmatically when a new Editor instance is created, since you use new $.fn.dataTable.Editor(...); to create a new instance and any dependent code can follow. However, it can be useful to apply common actions, event handlers or even for testing to multiple Editor instances, and this event provides that ability.

Note that unlike the other Editor events, do not listen for it on the Editor instance (since you don't know what that is!), but rather on the document element. The Editor instance that was created is passed in as the second parameter to the callback function.
