An instance if this class will be returned to an external event's owner upon the event's creation. The event's owner will use this instance to signal that his application needs to be called by Revit. Revit will periodically check if any of the events have been signaled (raised), and will execute all events that were signaled (raised) by calling the Execute method on the events' respective handlers.
