    h_______ I guess. Or event h_______.

    Thank you so much, I tried h____ before, ended up being event h____. My book has done this a few times, in fact, I have an online version of the book that is searchable and "event handler" appears no where in the entire book!

    You're welcome. Following forums like this is a good way of getting used to the jargon. (and jargon is all this question seems to be about)
