Event Handling in c#

I have a silverlight .net application.

It is using System.Windows.Controls.DataGrid  ..
Now I want to override SelectionChanged Event of that datagrid...

So in the code i wrote -
mydatagrid.SelectionChanged += new SelectionChangedEventHandler(mydg_SelectionChanged);

Open in new window

             
Now I also want to call the default(original/ base ) callback of that event-SelectionChanged in my callback like this
 void mydg_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
        {
              // run Original callback of System.Windows.Controls.DataGrid's SelectionChanged event  ....
             //run my code  
          }

Open in new window

How do i do that

I do not want to create a new DataGrid Class which inherits from System.Windows.Controls.DataGrid and then override SelectionChanged Event callback...
 
please help

thanks a lot

Yes. However, as I stated, if you just want the DataGrid's OnSelectionChanged to run before the code in your event handler, that already happens by default. It's only if you want to change that order that you'd need to do anything differently.

There is no "original" callback per se. There may be separate event handler wired up, but these are multicast delegates so many event handlers can be wired up to the same event and they will all fire. In the case of the event you've selected there is a base event handler called OnSelectionChanged. The only reason you would want to override that is if you didn't want the base to run before you code. In that case the correct way to do this would be to override the base implementation of the event handler rather than create your own.

protected override void OnSelectionChanged( SelectionChangedEventArgs e )
{
    // Your code goes here...

    base.OnSelectionChanged( e );
}

If you want the "base implementation", which I put in quotes because that's not entirely accurate, it's a different implementation) to run first you don't need to do anything, as the simple console application below illustrates. In this code the application writes out:

In A Foo Handler
In Main Foo Handler

using System;

namespace ConsoleApplication2
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main( string[] args )
        {
            A a = new A();
            a.Foo += a_Foo;

            a.FireFoo();

            Console.ReadKey();
        }

        static void a_Foo( object sender, EventArgs e )
        {
            Console.WriteLine( "In Main Foo Handler" );
        }
    }

    public class A
    {
        public event EventHandler<EventArgs> Foo;

        public A()
        {
            Foo += OnFoo;
        }

        public void FireFoo()
        {
            if( Foo != null )
            {
                Foo( this, EventArgs.Empty );
            }
        }

        private void OnFoo( object sender, EventArgs e )
        {
            Console.WriteLine( "In A Foo Handler" );
        }
    }
}
