You should be able to do something like this

if( $(window).width() > 420 ) {
//Run this code when the screen width is wider than 420px

Do you mean the DOMContentLoaded event used when register a callback function using the following code for example?

$(function(){ ... })

If you want to fire that event manually later instead of when the document is ready, you have to use $.holdReady().
