"The day you stop learning SharePoint is the day you stop using it."

Return the Current Site in an Event Receiver; the site in which event occurred.

In an ItemUpdated Event Receiver we were accessing two custom lists for reading values and for that we required to return the current site in which the event occured.
Simply writing SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://yoursitename"); does not make sense. Because you might don’t know where you need to deploy the Event Receiver, hence hard-coding the Site URL is a bad practice. The below code shows how to return current site URL.

namespace ItemUpdateFeatureReceiver
{
 public class Class1 : SPItemEventReceiver
 {
  private SPWeb _web;

  public SPWeb myWeb
  {
    get
    {
      return _web;
    }
    set
    {
      _web = value;
    }
  }

//Property that returns a custom list named “Document Type”
public SPList CustomList1
{
  get
  {
    SPList myList = myWeb.Lists["Document Type"];
    return myList;
  }
}

//Property that returns a custom list named “Document Sub-Type”
public SPList CustomList2
{
  get
  {
    SPList myList = myWeb.Lists["Document Sub-Type"];
    return myList;
  }
}


public override void ItemUpdated(SPItemEventProperties properties)
{
  //Returns the current site in which event occured
 
  myWeb = properties.OpenWeb();
  
  //your code
}
