# Method: handsfree.emit()

handsfree.emit(eventName, data)

Triggers a CustomEvent (opens new window) named handsfree-${eventName} on the document. It's essentially a shortcut to the following:

const event = new CustomEvent(`handsfree-${eventName}`, {detail: data})

# Parameters

eventName: string
(required) The name of the event to call, prefixed with handsfree-
data: any
(optional) Data to send with the event

# Example

const handsfree = new Handsfree({weboji: true})

// Listen to the event
document.addEventListener('handsfree-myEvent', (event) => {
  // logs: 123

// Emit the event
handsfree.emit('myEvent', 123)
