Is it usual to use the sender object in the event handler or should the object be contained in the event argument? I.e.

event EventHandler<MyControlEventArgs > MyControlChangedState;

void OnMyControlChangedState( MyControl myControl )
        {
            if ( MyControlChangedState != null )
            {
                MyControlChangedState( myControl, new MyControlEventArgs()  );

                // Or have the myControl object in event args
                // MyControlChangedState( myControl, new MyControlEventArgs( myControl )  );
            }
        }

void myControl_StateChanged( object sender, MyControlEventArgs e )
{
   // Get my control from sender or get it from the event args?
}

of course, if you are developing your own event and you call without specifiying the proper sender, it will fail. But the Microsoft's model suggest to use the sender.
