onevent: Run R code when an event is triggered on an element

Description Usage Arguments Event types Event properties Note See Also Examples

View source: R/onevent.R

Description

onclick runs an R expression (either a shinyjs function or any other code) when an element is clicked.

onevent is similar, but can be used when any event is triggered on the element, not only a mouse click. See below for a list of possible event types. Using "click" results in the same behaviour as calling onclick.

Usage

onclick(id, expr, add = FALSE, asis = FALSE)

onevent(event, id, expr, add = FALSE, properties = NULL, asis = FALSE)

Arguments

id

The id of the element/Shiny tag

expr

The R expression or function to run after the event is triggered. If a function with an argument is provided, it will be called with the JavaScript Event properties as its argument. Using a function can be useful when you want to know, for example, what key was pressed on a "keypress" event or the mouse coordinates in a mouse event. See below for a list of properties.

add

If TRUE, then add expr to be executed after any other code that was previously set using onevent or onclick; otherwise expr will overwrite any previous expressions. Note that this parameter works well in web browsers but is buggy when using the RStudio Viewer.

asis

If TRUE, use the ID as-is even when inside a module (instead of adding the namespace prefix to the ID).

event

The event that needs to be triggered to run the code. See below for a list of event types.

properties

A list of JavaScript Event properties that should be available to the argument of the expr function. See below for more information about Event properties.

Event types

Any standard mouse or keyboard events that are supported by JQuery can be used. The standard list of events that can be used is: click, dblclick, hover, mousedown, mouseenter, mouseleave, mousemove, mouseout, mouseover, mouseup, keydown, keypress, keyup. You can also use any other non standard events that your browser supports or with the use of plugins (for example, there is a mousewheel plugin that you can use to listen to mousewheel events).

Event properties

If a function is provided to expr, the function will receive a list of JavaScript Event properties describing the current event as an argument. Different properties are available for different event types. The full list of porperties that can be returned is: altKey, button, buttons, clientX, clientY, ctrlKey, pageX, pageY, screenX, screenY, shiftKey, which, charCode, key, keyCode, offsetX, offsetY. If you want to retrieve any additional properties that are available in JavaScript for your event type, you can use the properties parameter.

Note

shinyjs must be initialized with a call to useShinyjs() in the app's ui.
