Programmatically Disable Event Firing on List Item Update in SharePoint 2010


All credit to the original post here


The short version for my future reference is


Create a simple class


public classEventFiring : SPItemEventReceiver
       public void DisableHandleEventFiring()
           this.EventFiringEnabled =false;

       public void EnableHandleEventFiring()
           this.EventFiringEnabled =true;


Then use this to disable events


 using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
                    SPList list = web.Lists.TryGetList("Custom");
                    SPListItem item = list.GetItemById(34);
                    item["Title"] ="Updated Successfully";
                    EventFiring eventFiring = newEventFiring();
                    Console.WriteLine("Updated Successfully");
