Events Overview

What are Events?

Events allow the component to interact with the user, by triggering linked action cells on the Spreadsheet.

The most familiar example of an event is onClick - this event gets fired when the user has clicked the component using a mouse, or tapped it on the mobile device screen.

How to work with Events?

When triggered, an event:

  • ...returns a data frame with event information, depending on the event type. This frame can be read with =E() function. Event data can be extracted and used to build the desired application behavior;
  • ...executes linked action cell, which in its turn, can trigger a chain of any Spreadsheet or Flow operations with =DO() function.
