Can anyone clear one doubt regarding the below?

<aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>

When i run my component keeping this in my component code, it runs perfectly fine but when i change it to :-

<aura:handler name="initee" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>

changed init to initee, it throws me the below error while running the application:-

This page has an error. You might just need to refresh it.
Failed to initialize a component [Cannot read property 'g' of undefined]
Failing descriptor: {c:AllApplications}

Why it is happening so? Please clear this doubt for me.

Thanks, Ali


initee isn't a valid handler name. The two standard supported names I know of today are init and change, for aura:valueInit and aura:valueChange, respectively. You could create a custom event and name it as such, but it would have no special meaning in the Aura framework.
