Click Event Example

click control, double, doubleclick, double-click, event, events, propagation, light

This example shows the use of the click handler and getLonLatFromPixel functions to trigger events on mouse click.

Using the Click handler allows you to (for example) catch clicks without catching double clicks, something that standard browser events don't do for you. (Try double clicking: you'll zoom in, whereas using the browser click event, you would just get two alerts.) This example click control shows you how to use it.
