The name of the event as defined in the <event> element.
You can only fire events if they have been declared in the <public> element.
The Behavior handler exposes a fireEvent method that is similar to the Automation handler version, but which includes support for event objects. For details, see Exposing Custom Events in Behavior Script Components.
The following shows a fragment of a script component that defines the event namechanged and shows how to fire it.
A CDATA section is required to make the script in the <script> element opaque. For details, see Script Component Files and XML Conformance.
