Arguments

evCustomEvent
ev.detailObject
ev.detail.value - A boolean value indicating the new state of the button ( checked or not ).
ev.detail.oldValue - A boolean value indicating the previous state of the button ( checked or not ).
ev.detail.changeType - A string flag indicating whether the change event was triggered via API or an event.

Methods

isDefaultPrevented

Returns true if the event was prevented by any of its subscribers.

preventDefault

The preventDefault() method prevents the default action for a specified event. In this way, the source component suppresses the built-in behavior that follows the event.

stopPropagation

The stopPropagation() method of the Event interface prevents further propagation of the current event in the capturing and bubbling phases.

Example

Set up the event handler of change event.

const checkbox = document.querySelector('smart-check-box');
checkbox.addEventListener('change', function (event) {
    const detail = event.detail,
        value = detail.value,
        oldValue = detail.oldValue,
        changeType = detail.changeType;

	// event handling code goes here.
}
