hi, i am trying to make an event publication in a class registered as a service, but an exeption occure saying that the event must be of type EventHandler or EventHandler(Of T)

(my event is not of type EventHandler) ?

I can't make my event of type EventHandler(of T) because i am trying to make "e" a business object that doew not inherit from EventArgs !

class EventArgsThatContainMyEObject : EventArgs {
public MyBusenessObject myBusinessObject;
// constructor, et al.

public event EventHandler<EventArgsThatContainMyEObject> SomethingImportantHasHappened;

or something...

If you want to pass a business object as an argument for an EventBroker event then you should use the EventArgs<T> class, like so:

[EventPublication(EventTopicNames.SendSomeData, PublicationScope.Global)]
public void SendSomeData(object sender, EventArgs<MyBusinessObject> e);

Then you can use it like this:

private void SendData(MyBusinessObject obj)
   if(SendSomeData != null)
      SendSomeData(this, new EventArgs<MyBusinessObject>(obj));
