One of the things I’m working on is Event Receivers in SharePoint but I’ve found registering the event receivers to be a bit on the annoying side.  Yes you can do it with the feature.xml Receivers section and there is the great El Blanco Event Receivers Manager.

EventReceiverManagerI personally prefer desktop GUI applications and so, based on code by Liron, I’ve created my own desktop Event Receiver Manager.  It allows you to select site & list, browse for an assembly so it can give you the full assembly name and a list of classes inside, and a list of receivers you can attach to.

The current version only allows adding new event receivers.  Before adding a new receiver it will check to make sure the same receiver doesn’t already exist.

Future plans for it include listing existing receivers to allow users to delete them but as I don’t need to do that myself yet I haven’t implemented it.
