Object Deleted Event Overview

When an object is deleted from the Backendless Real-Time Database, it instantly notifies connected clients about the change using the delete event. Objects can be deleted either using the Backendless Data API or in Backendless Console. A listener for the delete event can be notified about the deletion of either any object in the database or only of those which match a pattern expressed as a where clause.

An event listener itself is an object which receives a callback when an event is triggered by the real-time database. To add an event listener, it is necessary to obtain a handler for a database table first. The handler provides methods for registering an event listener.
