Initializes a new instance of the RoutedEventArgs class, using the supplied routed event identifier.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public RoutedEventArgs(
	RoutedEvent routedEvent
You cannot use constructors in XAML.


Type: System.Windows.RoutedEvent

The routed event identifier for this instance of the RoutedEventArgs class.

When using this overloaded constructor, unspecified properties of the new RoutedEventArgs instance assume the following default values:

Null values for Source and OriginalSource only mean that this RoutedEventArgs makes no attempt to specify the source. When this instance is used in a call to RaiseEvent, the Source and OriginalSource values are populated based on the element that raised the event and are passed on to listeners through the routing.

The following example constructs a new RoutedEventArgs for use in a call to RaiseEvent.

void RaiseTapEvent()
        RoutedEventArgs newEventArgs = new RoutedEventArgs(MyButtonSimple.TapEvent);
