I have a class (C#) that throws an event. I wish to catch the fact that the event is thrown via mocking. What's the simplest way to do it? Note that unlike the example in your documentation I am not testing the event hook up mechanism, as that happens outside of the scope of the class that I'm testing.

I guess that the simplist way is to mock the method that will be called when the event is fired.
public void event_Fired(object sender, EventArgs e)
// test that the event is actually thrown
using (RecordExpectations recorder = RecorderManager.StartRecording())
   // expect event_Fired to be called once
   // uncomment next line to call original method
   // recorder.CallOriginal();

// lets register our event handler and see if it is called
TestedClass tested = new TestedClass ();
tested.MyEvent += event_Fired;

// fail if event_Fired was not called

That's what I figured. Thanks for the confirmation.
