    Event flow

    istrasci
      I have a question about events and their life cycle flow... If an event is set to bubble, I know it travels up the component hierarchy... My question is, does every ancestor who is listening handle the event, or is it a "dead ball" after the nearest listener handles it...?

      If it is the latter, I figure the nearest listener could then re-dispatch the event so more ancestor listeners could handle it... The question here is, if it was a custom event in the first place, does every re-dispatcher have to contain the same metadata defining the custom event that the original dispatcher had...?
