SharePoint Event Receiver values of before and after properties

Using event receivers in SharePoint Development is such a cool feature. Like it is called it’s an piece of code which can be executed by a certain event. But each event has properties like the value of an item.

What exactly is the value property? Do you mean the value before it is saved or after? The new or the old value? It possible to call by code ther after and before properties. But which value those have is told in this post and this post. I repeat the table here, cause it was really cool:

List

List BeforeProperties AfterProperties properties.ListItem
ItemAdding No value New value Null
ItemAdded No value New value New value
ItemUpdating No value New value Original value
ItemUpdated No value New value New value
ItemDeleting No value No value Original value
ItemDeleted No value No value Null

Document Library

Library BeforeProperties AfterProperties properties.ListItem
ItemAdding No value No value Null
ItemAdded No value No value New value
ItemUpdating Original value New value Original value
ItemUpdated Original value New value New value
ItemDeleting No value No value Original value
ItemDeleted No value No value Null

Hope it helps you.
