I know this problem:


try this:

    Private Sub ToolBar1_ButtonClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarButtonClickEventArgs) Handles ToolBar1.ButtonClick
        MsgBox(e.Button.ToString)
    End Sub


You wil see you have to extract this information from the second argument (ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarButtonClickEventArgs)
So if you use this code (I have a toolbar with 3 buttons; named button1,button2,button3) it will work:

    Private Sub ToolBar1_ButtonClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarButtonClickEventArgs) Handles ToolBar1.ButtonClick
        If e.Button.Text = "Button1" Then
            MsgBox("You clicked button 1...")
        ElseIf e.Button.Text = "Button2" Then
            MsgBox("You clicked button 2...")
        ElseIf e.Button.Text = "Button3" Then
            MsgBox("You clicked button 3...")
        End If
    End Sub

Try it and maybe you like it!

        MsgBox(e.Button)
    End Sub

This will pop up a message box telling the button text that was clicked.

Hello,

This references the index of each button in the toolbar that you made:

Private Sub ToolBar1_ButtonClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarButtonClickEventArgs) Handles ToolBar1.ButtonClick
        Select Case ToolBar1.Buttons.IndexOf(e.Button)
            Case 0
                 'skip this one
            Case 1
                'code for 1st button
            Case 2
                'More code here for other buttons
            Case 3 'etc etc
        End Select
    End Sub

Good luck

Chris
