target.event("click", "keyup || keydown", => { })

What if the user press enter key instead of clicking the button to trigger event? can both be an option within the same function?

There's no "event" method on an element, perhaps you are thinking of "addEventListener".

You also cannot give multiple event type arguments to one listener (or combine event types with logic). But the good news is that you can call the method multiple times to start as many listeners as you want on the same element, each looking for a different type. So yes, you can listen for all 3 events. And they can all have different handlers, or share one, it's your choice.

And remember to put a parameter name or () in front of the "arrow" in an arrow function expression.
