When the ROBIN script is loaded, the init-method is called automatically. This script initializes the tab according to settings specified in the ROBIN app (and possibly overruled by specifying a robin_settings object). The init-method also invokes events when can be specified in the robin_settings object. Using these events, additional steps can be performed. An example of such a step is display information regarding online employees.

Specifying an event handler is done by defining it in the robin_settings object as follows:


robin_settings = {
	callback: function(event, data){
		if (event == 'init'){
			// specify initialization code here


At this time init is the only supported event (containing no data), but additional events may be added in the future which makes it good practice to check for event-parameter before executing the code.
