How to check for an event and remove it?

In the Java version of iText, there's a method getPageEvent() available in PdfWriter. There should be a GetPageEvent() or PageEvent in iTextSharp that you can use to find out if there is a page event present.

To remove an existing page event, you need to set the page event to null. Adding an extra page event won't replace the existing page event, but add an extra event that will be triggered along with the original event(s).
