Attaching event receivers to list

Hi Friends,

SharePoint Event receivers are very impartment element in SharePoint infrastructure and as a developer we may need to create event receivers many times to meet the client requirement.

What if I need to create a List event receiver and to attach that to a list in my SharePoint site?

The easiest answer I can give at this point of time is to create a Feature receiver and in the feature activated event attach a receiver to a list using object model.

But there is yet another way which is quick than creating feature receiver. It is “SharePoint Event Receiver Manager (2007 & 2010)”.

This tool is a CodePlex project Contributed by .

I say this is a great tool to use in case of SharePoint Event Receivers development.

Note: complete contribution, development and license rights are with the team who have developed this and as per the Microsoft Reciprocal License . This post is just to make readers aware that this kind of tool exists.
