Part of the Netscape Navigator 4 event propagation complex.


JavaScript - 1.2

JavaScript syntax:-enableExternalCapture()

This method allows you to begin capturing events from other window objects that might have been loaded from a server other than the one that provided the script it is called from. This is not usually permitted because you could build a script that watches for users typing a password, for example. You need higher than normal privileges to execute this method.
