500pts: Generic unsubscribing an event?

Hi there,

I wonder if anyone can help, i need to unsubscribe from an event but i don't know the method at runtime.. Probably better if i explain with an example..

myGraphics.Click += new EventHandler(myGraphics_Click); // this is set in a form of some kind..

I then pass around myGraphics to difference forms so i need to reset the .Click event to myGraphics_Click but the problem is that it is still set to myGraphics_click on the original form before it was passed so hence the event fires on both forms :-)

Is there a way i can NULL the click event or something, or iterate through all subscribers to the click event so i can decide how to unsubscribe..

The problem is that i will probably have to unsubscribe the original form when i have arrived in my new form...

Confused? I am :-) .... Any ideas how to do this... really apprecaite any help

thanks in advance

Just remember the EventHandler that you added, then remove the same instance.

private EventHandler ClickEventHandler;

when you subscribe ...

ClickEventHandler = new EventHandler(myGraphics_Click);
myGraphics.Clicked += ClickEventHandler;



to unsubscribe ...
myGraphics.Clicked -= ClickEventHandler;


Cheers,

Greg

Thanks greg! i sort of have it working...

I had to make the event a static event because when the ovject with the click evetn arrives in another form I don't have a reference to it ... so i technically can't do myGraphics.Clicked -= ClickEventHandler;  or it would try to unsubscribe in the current form whcih i haven't subscribed to yet...  I presume i am correct on this?

Is there anyway i can check the object to see if anything has subscribed.... as i was getting a double event somewhere in my code.... so if i could do

if myGraphics.clicked == OriginalForm.ClickEventHandler
{
// hass been subscribed in original form
// then unsubscribe....

// then subscribe in this form

}
else
{

// jsut subscribe in this form..
}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can only do those sorts of tests from within the myGraphics class itself. Anything outside the class can only ever do += or -= to an event 'variable'.

How about doing if ( OriginalForm != null ) { ... unsubscribe} rather than checking the handler...

Alternatively, it's perfectly OK to detach events that have never been attached... (it'll just do nothing). So myGraphics.clicked -= OriginalForm.ClickEventHandler is OK even if you never did a += beforehand.

If myGraphics it is your class you can check it inside
if (Clicked != null)
{
.....
}
and create the public function
