Design Time Support for EventHandler



I implemented an event in a class as described in the Visual Studio
2008 documentation:

public EventHandler MyEvent;
protected virtual void OnMyEvent(EventArgs e)
if (MyEvent!= null) MyEvent(this, e);

The event works as expected but Intellisense doesn't recognise it as
eventhandler. MyEvent shows up as a public variable with a blue box
icon. Therefore I can't create an eventhandler template pressing the
<TAB>-key after the += as with the builtin events like Load.

Surely some design time support attributes or code is missing but I
wasn't able to find any information on how to tell Intellisense that
MyEvent is an eventhandler.
