Hi experts

i have this short code in C#

    public event EventHandler<LogAddedEventArgs> LogAdded;

   private void OnLogAdded(LogAddedEventArgs info)
        {
            if (LogAdded != null)
            {
                // Ce code permet l’exécution asynchrone des méthodes abonnées à  l’évènement
                Delegate[] DTab = LogAdded.GetInvocationList();
                foreach (Delegate tmp in DTab)
                {
                    EventHandler<LogAddedEventArgs> Dtmp = (EventHandler<LogAddedEventArgs>)tmp;
                    Dtmp.BeginInvoke(this, info, null, null);
                }
            }
        }


and when we translate in vb.NET

  Public Event LogAdded As EventHandler(Of LogAddedEventArgs)

 Private Sub OnLogAdded(ByVal info As LogAddedEventArgs)
            If LogAdded IsNot Nothing Then
                ' Ce code permet l’exécution asynchrone des méthodes abonnées à  l’évènement
                Dim DTab As [Delegate]() = LogAdded.GetInvocationList()
                For Each tmp As [Delegate] In DTab
                    Dim Dtmp As EventHandler(Of LogAddedEventArgs) = DirectCast(tmp, EventHandler(Of LogAddedEventArgs))
                    Dtmp.BeginInvoke(Me, info, Nothing, Nothing)
                Next
            End If
        End Sub


but i have error

seems that in C# they can "test" the delegate?!
can u help me to figure it out from c# to vb.net?

thank you

regards

Instead of this:
Dim DTab As [Delegate]() = LogAdded.GetInvocationList()

try this:
Dim DTab() As [Delegate] = LogAdded.GetInvocationList()

the error is that the "logadded" declared as event in vb.net cannot be tested in a "IF" condition and in C#, you can do that... (seems...)

I've done some reading which leads me to believe that VB.Net's event subscription model is indeed less... complete (for lack of a better word) than C#'s.  That said, you might find something useful in this article:
http://www.dotnetjohn.com/articles.aspx?articleid=62

Finally, I'm looking more closely at this C# line:

        if (LogAdded != null)

I'm more of a VB guy than a C# guy, so I may be missing something subtle in the C#, but it seems like this is supposed to determine if the LogAdded delegate has any handlers subscribing to it. If that's the case, the code may not be needed at all.  Since it's used inside code that handles the LogAdded event it won't run unless LogAdded has at least this method attached to it, and will therefore not be null.  However, I don't know that  the method won't be called explicitly as well, and again I may be missing something subtle.
