An instance of Event contains information about an event raised by an object sending the "dispatchEvent" message. You can interrogate the event instance to get the id of the event, and the handle of the object which dispatched the event.

Event objects are sent as parameters to methods registered against events using the "setEventTo" method. The dispatcher of an event should finalize the event after it has been sent with the "dispatchEvent" message. The receiver of an event must make its own copy of event information if this is needed after the receiving method exits.

See method dispatchEvent in class Base.
