RoutedEvent.AddOwner Method

Associates another owner type with the routed event represented by a RoutedEvent instance, and enables routing of the event and its handling.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public RoutedEvent AddOwner(
	Type ownerType


Type: System.Type

The type where the routed event is added.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.RoutedEvent
The identifier field for the event. This return value should be used to set a public static read-only field that will store the identifier for the representation of the routed event on the owning type. This field is typically defined with public access, because user code must reference the field in order to attach any instance handlers for the routed event when using the AddHandler utility method.

The owner type is used internally when resolving an event by name.

The following example adds the current class as another owner of an event defined in a different class. Here, AnotherEditContainer is the current class, and the EditStateChangedEvent RoutedEvent field is defined as a member of that class. The MyEditContainer class originally defined the event, registering it with the identically named EditStateChangedEvent identifier.

public static readonly RoutedEvent EditStateChangedEvent  = MyEditContainer.EditStateChangedEvent.AddOwner(typeof(AnotherEditContainer));
