This guide shows the deployment process of Event Receiver in basics words.
This post is part of my SharePoint 2010 Development training:
What is deployed?
Deploying an Event Receiver involves the following components:
- Which event to handle e.g. item updated
- Which assembly and which class handles the event
Code of the Event Receiver
Where is deployed?
If the feature is deployed to a Web Application it becomes available at the scope you defined . The feature.xml and the elements.xml are written to the file system in the features folder. Assemblies are deployed to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
Things to know!
- By default an Event Receiver is bound to a type of list (e.g. Document Library in general).
- You need to change the elements.xml to change this binding.
