#608 – Class Handlers Are Invoked Before Instance Handlers

If you have a class handler defined for a particular routed event, as well as one or more instance handlers on different elements, when the event fires, the class handler will be invoked before any instance handlers.

        public MainWindow()

            // Class handler--called when user clicks on ANY Button
                new RoutedEventHandler(HandleAllButtons));

        private void HandleAllButtons(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            Button b = (Button)e.Source;
            Trace.WriteLine(string.Format("* (CLASS handler) You clicked on [{0}] button", b.Content));

        // Click handler for Eliot button
        private void btnEliot_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            Trace.WriteLine("* (INSTANCE handler) You clicked on Eliot button");
