EventHandlerList Class

Provides a simple list of delegates. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)]
public sealed class EventHandlerList : IDisposable
NoteNote:

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

This class uses a linear search algorithm to find entries in the list of delegates. A linear search algorithm is inefficient when working with a large number of entries. Therefore, when you have a large list, finding entries is slow.

For an example of using an EventHandlerList, see How to: Handle Multiple Events Using Event Properties.
