C# delegates button event click

K,
This one is something I've done before but i can't remember the syntax or find it out there.

I have an arraylist of Windows.System.Forms
I pass it into a new form and I am building dynamic buttons based on the forms in the arraylist.  So thus trying to launch new forms on the click event of these button depending on the item in the array.  I can't remember for the life of me how to override the system.eventargs to allow more arguments than sender and eventargs.

so here's the syntax

namespace BackOfficeUtility
{
      public delegate void SelectedKeyEventHandler(object sender, SelectedKeyEventArgs e);
      public class frmMain : System.Windows.Forms.Form
      {
            public event SelectedKeyEventHandler KeySelected;
public frmMain(ArrayList arForms)
{
     int counter = 0;
     foreach(Form frm in arForms)
     {
           CreateButtons(counter, frm);
           counter ++;
     }
}

public void CreateButtons(int counter, Form frm)
{
   Button myButton = new Button();
   myButton.Click += new SelectedKeyEventArgs(frm);
}


//Here's the class for the delegates

      public class SelectedKeyEventArgs : EventArgs
      {
            private int _keyvalue;
            //public Form frm;
            public SelectedKeyEventArgs(Form frm)
            {
                  _frm = new Form(frm);
            }


            public Form frm
            {
                  get
                  {
                        return _frm;
                  }
                  set
                  {
                        _frm = Value;
                  }
            }
      }

The Delegate and related class is screwed up.  

So the problem lies in the last line which is the click event I need to send the form in so that I can launch the new form.

Please help out this one is more frustrating than anything

BG

the problem lies in ...

public void CreateButtons(int counter, Form frm)
{
   Button myButton = new Button();
   myButton.Click += new SelectedKeyEventArgs(frm);
}

you are using your own custom eventargs ... the button does not ...

instead what you probably want to do is ...

namespace BackOfficeUtility
{
     private HashTable ButtonMap = new HashTable();

     public class frmMain : System.Windows.Forms.Form
     {
          public event SelectedKeyEventHandler KeySelected;

public frmMain(ArrayList arForms)
{
     int counter = 0;
     foreach(Form frm in arForms)
     {
           CreateButtons(counter, frm);
           counter ++;
     }
}

private void foo(object sender, EventArgs e) {
     Form f = ButtonMap[sender] as Form;
     if(f!=null) {
          f = the form you want ...
     }
}

public void CreateButtons(int counter, Form frm)
{
   Button myButton = new Button();
   this.ButtonMap.Add(myButton, frm);
   myButton.Click += new EventHandler(this.foo);
}
