I have a  CmdName_Click()  sub, wich contains same functions wich are
handled in this sub.  I do not want to copy these lines to another sub where
this is needed also. Just trying to call this  CmdName  from this other sub.
How to perform such a call from this second sub.
Regards Jack

In VB6
Just call the CmdName_Click

Private Sub Command1_Click()
     MsgBox "Hello World!"
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
      'Call Command Button 1 Click
      Command1_Click
End Sub

Could also use Call Command1_Click

In VB.NET:

The 'proper' thing to do is to move the code to be executed by both into its own subroutine and call that subroutine from the two places.

I agree with cookre.  

A function, not another subroutine, that can be called from the two subroutines is what I think would be 'proper'.  

Do you agree cookre?

Whether function or subroutine depends on whether or not a return value is provided, but the common code should be in its own routine.

Hi,
 why not you put public in the calling methed, ie, which method you want to call?
 You can call that method by putting formname.public method.

If you want it like a template, put it in a module and pass the control objet to that. In the module method, get the proper objet type and manipulate.

 Hope you get the idea.
all the best.
