Name

EventInfo

Synopsis

This class allows you to access events through reflection, and is, itself, an implementation of MemberInfo. Attributes gets the EventAttributes object, and EventHandlerType gets the System.Type of the event-handler delegate for the event. IsMulticast returns true if the event is multicast, and IsSpecialName indicates whether this has special meaning. AddEventHandler() adds the passed delegate to the event handler, and GetAddMethod(), GetRaiseMethod(), and GetRemoveMethod() return a MethodInfo for the method used to add an event handler, raise an event, or remove an event handler, respectively.
