whats the meaning of event driven?

hi :)

i read this docs http://www.yiiframework.com/doc/guide/1.1/en/basics.component

in this

I didn’t understand about this onClicked or so called onClicked use, i know onclicked appear in input html tag, but how php handle this onClicked event?

its will be more easier to understand if this document giving real simple example :) thank you

Thiss example is a bit confusing, in fact Yii has not handlers for manage the onClick of buttons.

Real example are even onBeforeSave, onAfterFind of the model.

Yii is not event driven as Prado, it means that the input ($_GET, $POST) should be managed by developers
