CodeMemberEvent Class

Represents a declaration for an event of a type.

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

public class CodeMemberEvent : CodeTypeMember

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;

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
