Simple Dynamaic Event Question

Ok, i'm sure this is very simple, but as it is i can't find it anywhere online, and i'm basically driving myself insane.  currently i am creatign dynamic components and adding them to the surrent form, and all i want to do in the world is add an onClick handler to these compoents, the important code is below.

field := TTabSheet.create(self);
//create quizes tab
with field do
begin
  caption := 'Students';
  PageControl := subjectPages[index];
  Height := 425;
  Width := 785;
  with TStringGrid.Create(self) do
  begin
    parent := field;
    height := 425;
    width := 785;
  end;
end;

now i figured i could just do a onClick := "a procedure here"; and be done with it, but that hasn't worked very well, which is to say not at all. If anybody could just show me how this is done dynamically, in the code, without using the object inspector i would be quite pleased.
Thanks,

What I usually do is drop a like component on the form, name it the same as the one I'm going to dynamically
create and then dbl=click it's OnClick procedure in the OI to create the procedure, add a comment in the procedure
so it won't get deleted, and then delte the component I dropped on the form. Then all you have to do is

  MyDynamicallyCreatedcomponent.onClick := MyDroppedCompnentClick;

Note:
Your onclick procedure has to be declared as (i.e. its prototype shoud be):
procedure MyClickProcedure(Sender: TObject);

Tou CANNOT have something like
procedure MyClickProcedure(someotherparameter:string; yetanotherparameter:integer);

for onclick
Perhaps that would help clarify.
