I am creating a new PictureBox with an event Handler.  See code.  This code works fine.  It displays a small image on top of the large image.  What I want to do now is close the small image (or set it's visibility = false) when I click on the small image.  I guess the main question is how to Add an event Handler to an object that's created dynamically.

Private Sub LargeImg_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles LargeImg.MouseDown
        If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
            Dim myPB As PictureBox = New PictureBox
            myPB.Image = Image.FromFile("c:/Project/Images/SmallImg.jpg")
            myPB.SetBounds(e.X, e.Y, 20, 16)
            myPB.Name = "SmallImage"
            myPB.Parent = LargeImg
            myPB.Show()
        End If
End Sub

This add a handler dinamically

AddHandler myPB.Click, AddressOf myPB_Click


Private Sub LargeImg_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles LargeImg.MouseDown
        If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
            Dim myPB As PictureBox = New PictureBox
            myPB.Image = Image.FromFile("c:/Project/Images/SmallImg.jpg")
            myPB.SetBounds(e.X, e.Y, 20, 16)
            myPB.Name = "SmallImage"
            myPB.Parent = LargeImg
            AddHandler myPB.Click, AddressOf myPB_Click
            myPB.Show()
        End If
End Sub

Public Sub myPB_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
     myPB.Visible = false
End Sub

Thanks.  That works as long as I declare myPB outside the Private Sub.  myPB needs to be Public for myPB_Click to reconize it.

I need to take this code one step forward.  I have an large PictureBox on the form.  When a user clicks on the large PictureBox, a new myPB is created.  So you can have multiple PictureBoxes created.  Right now, the Envent Handler will only close the most recent PictureBox.  However I want to be able to close any of them, by clicking on the one I want to close.  Can I use myPB.Name and change the name for each one?  I've been playing around with the code, but can't put it together.

Thanks.

Then use the sender paramenter.

it's the object on which the click was performed.

Public Sub myPB_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)  
     sender.Visible = false
End Sub

if you have problems let me know it.
