Hi,

I assume in these cases, the interface always inherits from EventTarget; 
tell me if it's not always the case.
Would it make sense to add an event annotation, as in:

     event success

WebIDL would describe this as "attribute EventHandler onsuccess;" + 
"instances can trigger such an event in circumstances described by the 
spec". The latter part is omitted from WebIDL and I think it would be 
extremely valuable for developers too to see that things are events and 
not just on* properties.

What do you think?

David

Hi,

The IDB specification still uses IDL like

   [TreatNonCallableAsNull] attribute Function? onsuccess;

for its event handlers. Current practice is to use

   attribute EventHandler onsuccess;

Please update the specification.

Thanks,
Ms2ger
