Click EVent Misunderstaninding

Hi, please can somebody explain to me how events works with C# Windows Programming. I mean take this for example.  In the form I add a button, I then double click this button and it takes me into the code, where it generates an event.

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
        }

Now, I thought ok, I will create one manually without double clicking it. So I add another button underneathe it called button2 and then I go into the code and manually type this

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
        }

When I double click the button and it generates the code then it will fire the Click event. But in the case of button2, when I manually write the code it does not fire.

I am obviously missing the method of attaching the event to the button.

thanks in advance

Andrew

Right-click on button1_Click and select "Find all references". You will see the following line generated by Windows Form Designer when you double-click button:

this.button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.button1_Click);

Designer-generated code is placed in separate file (2005 version) or in the same file (precious versions). This line subscribes to Click event. To do the same manually add the following code to form constructor or Load handler:

this.button2.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.button2_Click);

GOTCHA

So all events I want to declare for any object, I put in the Form.Designer.cs file , under the intialize component.

No, Form.Designer.cs file is file managed by Form Designer, don't make any changes in it. You have Form.cs file to write your own code.
