One Sub, Multiple event Handlers

Heres what I have:

Sub ItemsGet(Optional ByVal sender As Object = Nothing, Optional ByVal e As EventArgs = Nothing) Handles search_button.Click, cmdPrev.Click, cmdPrev.Click
..
code
...

=========================================================================
Is this even possible? If so, am I doing it right?
And - further  - if it is possible, how can I retrieve exactly which button was pressed.
I tried Response.Write(sender.ToString) but that wasnt useful, it just printed "System...Button"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

convert the sender object to button, e.g:


Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click, Button2.Click, Button3.Click
      Label1.Text = CType(sender, Button).Text
End Sub
