Can sender be defined as something other than Object? Can it be defined as a particular type of object?
In other words, what options do I have when specifying sender in an event handler?

Hi bobinorlando,

If you are writing your own events in a class, you can declare sender as whatever you wish.

If, however you are using an inbuilt control event, it must remain as an Object, and use CType() as Idle_Mind suggested.

Regards,

Wayne
