Events

Add events listener on plugin initialization

$('#tags').inputTags({
    init: function($elem) {
      console.log('Event called on plugin init', $elem);
    },
    create: function() {
      console.log('Event called when an item is created');
    },
    update: function() {
      console.log('Event called when an item is updated');
    },
    destroy: function() {
      console.log('Event called when an item is deleted');
    },
    selected: function() {
      console.log('Event called when an item is selected');
    },
    unselected: function() {
      console.log('Event called when an item is unselected');
    },
    change: function($elem) {
      console.log('Event called on item change', $elem);
    }
});

**Add events after plugin initialization**
“`js
$(‘#tags’).inputTags().on(‘change’, function($elem) {
console.log(‘Event called on item change’, $elem);
});
“`
same as:
“`js
$(‘#tags’).inputTags(‘event’, ‘change’, function($elem) {
console.log(‘Event called on item change’, $elem);
});
