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

public class CodeEventReferenceExpression : CodeExpression

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
