RoutedEventArgs Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Contains state information and event data associated with a routed event.


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

public class RoutedEventArgs : EventArgs

The RoutedEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodRoutedEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the RoutedEventArgs class.

Public propertyOriginalSourceGets a reference to the object that raised the event.

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 the Object 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.)

This class is responsible for packaging the event data for a routed event, providing extra event state information, and is used by the event system for invoking the handler associated with the routed event.

The most relevant information carried in the event data is the OriginalSource, which reports the object that first raised the event. In the case of a bubbling routed event, this could be a different object in the element tree than the object where the handler being invoked is attached.
