I'm going through a set of tutorials, and where in the past I
have used addListener to specify an object as an event listener, a
new tutorial is asking me to use addEventListener().
The differrence is that addListener() requires only one
parameter - the object that will be the listener. addEventListener
also requires a string which is the name of the event that will be
triggered. When I am listening for multiple events, this would
necessitate multiple listeners - a big pain.
So - here's my question. Is there any application where
addListener() just won't work, so I should deffinately use
addEventListener()? Also, since addEventListener() is both more
limited in function and more code intensive, is there any advantage
it has over addListener()?
