Note: Advice in this article will only work for DotNetBrowser 1.
See the corresponding article for DotNetBrowser 2 here.

Starting from DotNetBrowser 1.8.1 it is possible to simulate any DOM event for any particular node.

The following sample demonstrates how to simulate a custom event for a DOM node and handle it in DotNetBrowser.
