Detecting An Event within A Page

attachEvent()syntax is as follows:
If there is an additional event handler defined for the object the event fired on, it will be run before the function
eventHandler()is called. If you attach several event handlers to the same page, they will be called in a random order, immediately after the object's event handler is run, if at all defined.
Let's take an example. In the page's
init() function you can ask that the function
mouseDownHandler() be called when the
onmousedown event fires:
And you can determine the object it fired on by going:
objectClicked = event.srcElement.id;
