    private void ContentServiceSaving(IContentService sender, SaveEventArgs<IContent> args)
                        var contentService = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.ContentService;
                        MyEventHandler myEventHandler = new MyEventHandler();
                        myEventHandler.CreatePage("Dummyfolder1", 15239, "Folder", "dummydata");
                    private bool CreatePage(string name, int parentPageId, string docTypeAlias, string someData)
                        var contentService = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.ContentService;
                        var publishDate = DateTime.Now;
                        var content = contentService.CreateContent(name, parentPageId, docTypeAlias);

    Hi Srinivasan

    Welcome to Our, the friendly community.

    The reason for your infinite loop, is the calling of contentService.SaveAndPublishWithStatus(content).

    You need to use the overload, which doesn't raise events, as your ContentServiceSaving event, will trigger your CreatePage method again, creating a new "Dummyfolder1" page. This will then raise the ContentServiceSaving event again, and further on...

    IIRC, you can add false as the second parameter for SaveAndPublishWithStatus, but check with Intellisense, just to be sure.
