In your class that you wish to fire the event

Declare private or protected attribute of Events class.

private BasicEvents.Events _events = new BasicEvents.Events();

Declare a public read only property to return the Events class instance that all the events will be fired from.

public BasicEvents.Events Events




return _events;



Where you want to fire one of the basic events just call the related method:

_events.FireMessageReceived(this, "Demo");

Fire events methods:

  • FireMessageReceived: fires MessageReceived event.
  • FireTimeMessageReceived: fires TimeMessageReceived event.
  • FireExceptionReceived: fires ExceptionReceived event.

In your presentation tier, or the class where you intend to handle the events fired:

Provided that you make instance of the business tier library

DMO_BLL.DMO _dmo = new DMO_BLL.DMO();

Register the event handlers

_dmo.Events.MessageReceived += new BasicEvents.Events.MessageReception(Events_MessageReceived);

Create the Events_MessageReceived method

void Events_MessageReceived(object sender, BasicEvents.MessageEventArgs e)




Run the business method in the business tier library
