UserControl control announcement to parent....

Hello,

I have just started playing around with VS 2005.

Can a combobox in a UserControl *announce* to the holding form that it's selectedIndex has changed?

If so, how can I set this up - will increase points for sample code.


thanks in advance,

Define an event for the UserControl:

  Public Event SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

Raise an event:

   Private Sub OnSelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.SelectedIndexChanged

     RaiseEvent SelectedIndexChanged(sender, e)

  End Sub
