CodeEventReferenceExpression Class

Represents a reference to an event.


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

public class CodeEventReferenceExpression : CodeExpression

The CodeEventReferenceExpression type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeEventReferenceExpression()Initializes a new instance of the CodeEventReferenceExpression class.
Public methodCodeEventReferenceExpression(CodeExpression, String)Initializes a new instance of the CodeEventReferenceExpression class using the specified target object and event name.

Public propertyEventNameGets or sets the name of the event.
Public propertyTargetObjectGets or sets the object that contains the event.
Public propertyUserDataGets the user-definable data for the current object. (Inherited from CodeObject.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

CodeEventReferenceExpression can be used to represent a reference to an event.

The TargetObject property specifies the object that contains the event. The EventName property specifies the name of the event.

The following example demonstrates use of CodeEventReferenceExpression to reference an event named TestEvent.

// Represents a reference to an event.
CodeEventReferenceExpression eventRef1 = new CodeEventReferenceExpression( new CodeThisReferenceExpression(), "TestEvent" );

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

//        this.TestEvent
