Summary of Content
By clicking on a texture below, the page background will change to it. Can be used anywhere.
This is achieved by using the canceBubble event.
This sets or retrieves whether the current event should bubble up the hierarchy of event handlers.
event.cancelBubble = false
false (default) - Bubbling is enabled, allowing the next event handler in the hierarchy to receive the event.
true - Bubbling is disabled for this event, preventing the next event handler in the hierarchy from receiving the event.
Using this property to cancel bubbling for an event does not affect subsequent events.
A double mouse click anywhere on the page (except when over hyperlinks / images) will take you back to the top of the page.
