RoutedEventArgs Constructor (RoutedEvent, Object)

Initializes a new instance of the RoutedEventArgs class, using the supplied routed event identifier, and providing the opportunity to declare a different source for the event.

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

public RoutedEventArgs(
	RoutedEvent routedEvent,
	Object source
You cannot use constructors in XAML.


Type: System.Windows.RoutedEvent

The routed event identifier for this instance of the RoutedEventArgs class.

Type: System.Object

An alternate source that will be reported when the event is handled. This pre-populates the Source property.

When using this overloaded constructor, unspecified properties of the new RoutedEventArgs instance assume the following default values:

Null values for OriginalSource are populated based on the element that raised the event and passed on through the routing, but will read null prior to invocation.

Use this signature when passing RoutedEventArgs to virtuals such as OnSelectionChanged, where the arguments are used to call RaiseEvent internally.
