Events it's a possibility of the classes to tell anyone who is interested in this, that some changes in the class was made.

Class _A don't know anything about class _B or class _C. He just send the message for all listener. Like a radio station.

To make listener classes able to get events from the sender class, we must register this event. Like a radio station that you choose in the car to listen all interesting news.

Below you can see some example:
REPORT.
CLASS _a DEFINITION.
PUBLIC SECTION.
METHODS change_price
IMPORTING i_price TYPE price.

EVENTS price_was_changed.
PRIVATE SECTION.
DATA price TYPE price.
ENDCLASS.

CLASS _a IMPLEMENTATION.
METHOD change_price.
price = i_price.
RAISE EVENT price_was_changed.
ENDMETHOD.
ENDCLASS.


CLASS _b DEFINITION.
PUBLIC SECTION.
METHODS handle_price_was_changed FOR EVENT price_was_changed OF _a.
ENDCLASS.

CLASS _b IMPLEMENTATION.
METHOD handle_price_was_changed.
WRITE: 'Gotcha!'.
ENDMETHOD.
ENDCLASS.


CLASS _c DEFINITION.
PUBLIC SECTION.
METHODS handle_double_click FOR EVENT double_click OF cl_gui_alv_grid.
ENDCLASS.

CLASS _c IMPLEMENTATION.
METHOD handle_double_click.
WRITE `Dont't care about class _a events`.
ENDMETHOD.
ENDCLASS.

START-OF-SELECTION.
DATA(shop) = NEW _a( ).

DATA(listener_b) = NEW _b( ).
DATA(listener_c) = NEW _c( ).

SET HANDLER listener_b->handle_price_was_changed FOR ALL INSTANCES.
SET HANDLER listener_c->handle_double_click FOR ALL INSTANCES.

shop->change_price( '10.99' ).

Result. After price was change price_was_changed event was raised. But because we set only one listener (listener_b) to this event, only one handler was triggered.
