JavaScript jQuery Basics Understanding jQuery Events and DOM Traversal Using Events with Dynamically Added Elements

Does the show() and hide() methods count as event listeners as well? Or is it only the click() function that does?

I'm not sure what you mean by "bring a function with them". But show() and hide() are both functions (methods) themselves that affect the visibility of the element(s) they are applied to.

They do not respond to events directly, but they are commonly used in event handlers to make visibility changes when events occur.
