Trying to pass user created image.tag to another forms textbox

Hi

Using VB.Net VS 2003

I am just getting into public subs and how they work. I have some code where a user has created an image on the tab of a form - Form2. I am trying to put an event handler behind the image for when it is clicked so it will pass the Image.Tag value to a textbox on Form13.

Here is what I have thus far:

Dim tabAttImg As New PictureBox
tabAttImg.Image = clsGlobals.Form2.ImageList1.Images(0)
tabAttImg.Name = "pic" & txtName.Text
tabAttImg.Tag = txtName.Text
tabAttImg.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Hand
tabAttImg.Size = New Size(16, 16)
tabAttImg.Location = New Point(208, 8 + (TabbyCt * 24))

AddHandler tabAttImg.Click, AddressOf ListClickster(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) 'this line does not work the ByVal text is causing an error - says expression required

clsGlobals.Form2.TabControl1.SelectedTab.Controls.Add(tabAttImg)


'this is the code I want put in a click event behind the image created above. How do I do this?
Public Sub ListClickster(ByVal ctrl As Control)

        If clsGlobals.Form13 Is Nothing Then
            clsGlobals.Form13 = New Form13
        End If

        clsGlobals.Form13.Show()
        clsGlobals.Form13.Focus()
        clsGlobals.Form13.lblTarget.Text = "Target Attribute: " & ctrl.Tag

    End Sub

The sub your are "wiring up" with AddHandler has to have the SAME signature as the event being trapped.

So your ListClickster() sub needs to match the PictureBox.Click() event signature.

Also, in the "AddHandler" only the name of the sub goes after the "AddressOf" part...

Something like...

        ...
        AddHandler tabAttImg.Click, AddressOf ListClickster
        ...

    Public Sub ListClickster(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        If clsGlobals.Form13 Is Nothing Then
            clsGlobals.Form13 = New Form13
        End If

        clsGlobals.Form13.Show()
        clsGlobals.Form13.Focus()
        clsGlobals.Form13.lblTarget.Text = "Target Attribute: " & sender.Tag
    End Sub
