how to use addEventListener

Can someone give an example of how to make addEventListener work on the Blackberry browser?  I am using the 9550 simulator.


Many questions in this forum get referred to the documentation. 


However, the Blackberry Browser Javascript  Reference contains no examples.  And so even though addEventListener is documented, I am unable to make it work and need some example code.

Re: how to use addEventListener

An example to listen for the load would look like the following:



window.addEventListener("load", function(e) { alert("loaded"); }, false );
