Is there any way that I can create a new delegate type based on an existing one? In my case, I'd like to create a delegate
using MyRightClickHandler = EventHandler<MouseEventArgs>
Well, it's as simple as copying the delegate declaration from the original. There's nothing in C# to do this automatically, but I can't see it's much of a burden:
public delegate void MyLeftClickHandler(object sender, MouseEventArgs e); public delegate void MyRightClickHandler(object sender, MouseEventArgs e);
It's not like
MouseEventHandler is going to change any time soon...
Have you actually been bitten by bugs due to using the wrong delegates in the wrong places though? I can't remember ever having found this a problem myself, and it seems to me you're introducing more work (and an unfamiliar set of delegates for other developers) - are you sure it's worth it?
