link events to subs for controls created At Runtime

Hello People

If I create a new control on my form during runtime, how can I set the new control's events?  For example, I create "btnNewButton1",  How can I add a "btnNewCutton1_Click" event? Keeping in mind, program is compiled and running!

Would it be possible to define a new class of buttons, and set it's _Click event so that a new control based on that new class would allready have it's _click event defined???  How would I do that??

Am I making sense???
