CodeDelegateInvokeExpression Class

Represents an expression that raises an event.

Namespace:  System.CodeDom
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public class CodeDelegateInvokeExpression : CodeExpression

CodeDelegateInvokeExpression can be used to represent code that invokes an event. Invoking an event invokes all delegates that are registered with the event using the specified parameters.

The TargetObject property specifies the event to invoke. The Parameters property specifies the parameters to pass to the delegates for the event.

The following example demonstrates use of a CodeDelegateInvokeExpression to invoke an event named TestEvent.

// Invokes the delegates for an event named TestEvent, passing a local object reference and a new System.EventArgs.
CodeDelegateInvokeExpression invoke1 = new CodeDelegateInvokeExpression( new CodeEventReferenceExpression(new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestEvent"), 
    new CodeExpression[] { new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), new CodeObjectCreateExpression("System.EventArgs") } );

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code: 

//    this.TestEvent(this, new System.EventArgs());
