Description Marius Ungureanu 2015-02-19 10:45:20 UTC
When inspecting a class with events, private/internal events appear as multicast delegates, while public events do not.

Triggering an inspection through the immediate window will just tell you that the member cannot be found.
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2015-02-19 13:32:02 UTC
How could this be inspected in a general way? Events only have add/remove, not get.

We could special-case compiler-generated events to find the compiler-generated field, I guess.
Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2015-02-19 14:22:40 UTC
They have add/remove, but it still points to a multicast/normal delegate, right?

Now that I think about it, the event I was talking about is an NSTextField's Changed event. I haven't actually checked if it's a compiler generated event or not.
