Add Event to the referenced form in

I have one form in the application(client) that has been referenced from the class library.  I like to add event like button_clicked on the referenced form.  How to add the events of forms and control of forms in the client application if the form is not added manually but is referenced from another class library.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The easy way is to:

(1) Define an event in the form:
     Public ButtonClickedEvent(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)

(2) Raise the event:
     RaiseEvent ButtonClickedEvent(Me, New EventArgs)

(3) Catch the event:
     Private WithEvents formReference as frmMain

    Private Sub formReference_ButtonClickedEvent(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    End Sub
