I have an object I want to pass through an event. Do I need to create my own DataeventArgs class inheriting from the standard one? or ???

I would suggest you use the EventArgs class in the Infrastructure.Interface
namespace, that one allows you to define your eventhandler with a template
parameter (== the class of the object you want to pass around). See the GlobalBank.BranchSystems.Module.ModuleController in the
BankBranchWorkbench application for an example.

If it's just a single object, use the EventArgs<T> class in the Infrastructure project. Otherwise, if you need to pass multiple parameters at a time, then you'll need a custom EventArgs class.

Ok. Worked great. I appreciate your help.

Hi Rob, you should use DataEventArgs because is a generic class.

Take a look at this piece of code:

[EventPublication("topic://MyApp/UpdateCustomerInfo", PublicationScope.Global)]
public event EventHandler<DataEventArgs<Customer>> UpdateCustomerInfoEvent;
protected virtual void OnCustomerInfoUpdate(Customer myCustomer)
      if (UpdateCustomerInfoEvent != null)
            UpdateCustomerInfoEvent(this, new DataEventArgs<Customer>(myCustomer));

Let me know if this helps,
