The event route that handlers are added to.


The event data that is used to add the handlers. This method uses the property of the event data to create the handlers.

This method can be used by content host elements (either those that implement IContentHost or those that don't) to add handlers for child elements to the EventRoute. Ordinarily, this is not required for UIElement, because handlers are automatically added for all elements found in a completed logical tree. However, in some cases where ContentElement and UIElement are mixed in templated trees, intervening elements that came from the template need to be added to a route. Both ContentElement and UIElement support a version of this method.
