<h2>Using <code>addEventListener()</code> with an <code>options</code> Object as Third Parameter</h2>

<button>Trigger the Click Event</button>

<div class="output">[Click the Button]<br></div>

<p>The event listener for the button appends text to the DIV element above. Due to the <code>once: true</code> property of the <code>options</code> object, the text gets appended only once then the event listener is removed.<p>
