Where can I find a complete list of all possible events for 'handleEvent' (the Strings provided in 'appEvent'). From what I have gathered, the format is as follows:



  • field1 - is the event type: such as 'file', 'app', 'account'
  • field2 - is the qualifier for the event type - for example for 'file' I've seen: 'closing', 'presave', 'postsave', 'closed', 'opened'.

I've searched the MD opensource and found further examples - but a comprehensive list of strings for the current MD version would be helpful.

I can make progress with an experimental approach - finding the events from applicable use cases - but a full list is what I'm after.

Thanks for the assistance.
