CodeMemberEvent Class

Represents a declaration for an event of a type.

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

public class CodeMemberEvent : CodeTypeMember

The CodeMemberEvent type exposes the following members.

Public methodCodeMemberEventInitializes a new instance of the CodeMemberEvent class.

Public propertyAttributesGets or sets the attributes of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyCommentsGets the collection of comments for the type member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyCustomAttributesGets or sets the custom attributes of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyEndDirectivesGets the end directives for the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyImplementationTypesGets or sets the data type that the member event implements.
Public propertyLinePragmaGets or sets the line on which the type member statement occurs. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyPrivateImplementationTypeGets or sets the privately implemented data type, if any.
Public propertyStartDirectivesGets the start directives for the member. (Inherited from CodeTypeMember.)
Public propertyTypeGets or sets the data type of the delegate type that handles 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.)

CodeMemberEvent can be used to represent event members of a type. CodeMemberEvent has properties to indicate the data type of the event, whether it privately implements a data type, and what interface types, if any, the member event implements.

This example demonstrates use of a CodeMemberEvent to declare an event that takes a System.EventHandler delegate:

// Declares an event that accepts a delegate type of System.EventHandler.
CodeMemberEvent event1 = new CodeMemberEvent();
// Sets a name for the event.
event1.Name = "TestEvent";
// Sets the type of event.
event1.Type = new CodeTypeReference("System.EventHandler");

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

//    private event System.EventHandler TestEvent;
