Event Listeners


Event listeners allow you to respond to user interactions with the UI components you've defined in a Gradio Blocks app. When a user interacts with an element, such as changing a slider value or uploading an image, a function is called.

Supported Event Listeners

The SimpleImage component supports the following event listeners. Each event listener takes the same parameters, which are listed in the Event Parameters table below.

Listener Description

SimpleImage.clear(fn, ยทยทยท)

This listener is triggered when the user clears the SimpleImage using the X button for the component.

SimpleImage.change(fn, ยทยทยท)

Triggered when the value of the SimpleImage changes either because of user input (e.g. a user types in a textbox) OR because of a function update (e.g. an image receives a value from the output of an event trigger). See .input() for a listener that is only triggered by user input.

SimpleImage.upload(fn, ยทยทยท)

This listener is triggered when the user uploads a file into the SimpleImage.
