AddHandler syntax error

I have the following lines of code in my app (I put them in a module for global use)...I am getting a syntax error on the AddHandler (only that word is underlined), but when I look at the documentation, the syntax looks the same (see copied code below mine)

    'The 2 event handlers
    'add an unhandled exceptions handler
    Public currentDomain As AppDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain
    'for regular unhandled stuff
AddHandler currentDomain.UnhandledException, AddressOf Me.MYExceptionHandler
    'for threads behind forms
AddHandler Application.ThreadException, AddressOf Me.MYThreadHandler

    Private Sub MYExceptionHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As UnhandledExceptionEventArgs)
       
          MsgBox("Handled Error") ' Just put tha there for the question

    End Sub

    Private Sub UHThreadEX(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Threading.ThreadExceptionEventArgs)

           MsgBox("Unhandled Error") ' Just put tha there for the question

    End Sub


MS Code:

AddHandler MyObject.Event1, AddressOf Me.MyEventHandler

You can't use the keyword Me within a Module.

Try:
   AddHandler currentDomain.UnhandledException, AddressOf MYExceptionHandler
or
   AddHandler currentDomain.UnhandledException, AddressOf MyModuleName.MYExceptionHandler

You might also need to make your handler subs Public instead of Private (that is sometimes, but not always, necessary).

I got the correct answer in a MS forum.  Addhandlers have to be in a Sub or Function.  Once I moved it, I was fine.
