MDI Forms

I have an MDI application.

When my parent opens a child form I am able to hook into the close event of the child form in my parent's code as follows:

          private void File_New_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
          {
               NewPartitionForm1 objForm = new NewPartitionForm1();

               objForm.MdiParent = this;

               objForm.Closing += new CancelEventHandler(Form1_Closed);

               objForm.Show();
          }

How can I hook into events such as click events of buttons on my child though?

Thanks

Dave

objForm.MyButton.Click += new EventHandler (...);

but the MyButton should be a public variable or a public property that exposes the button. The other way is to make a public method of your control to receive the delegate and attach it to the control.

Thanks, this works great.  Weird thing is I suspected this is how it works - ie make the button public which I'm sure I tried yesterday but it didn't work?  Oh well must have done something silly.

Thanks
