That is, I understood that event detection is not possible, is that correct?

@blackmoja the open-telemetry eco system is not mature around this area. Just yesterday the proposal to add the new event API added to enhancements. So there will be some traction around that in the coming months, especially in the client side languages but you can safely assume it will take few months to see any reasonable development and ready to use work.

@Srikanth Chekuri can't those UI generated events be added as context of span?

Maybe I misunderstood but I think the OPs requirements are different. You could add events if there is a current active span but that's not always the case. Example how does user navigate the pages, counting leads from list page to checkout page, cursor hot spots events, DOM events etc.. some of these usecases don't really fit into tracing nicely so the need to introduce new events concept.

@Srikanth Chekuri In a matter of months, we can still find out whether or not to introduce an event-related API 👀 Thank you.
