I have one sub where I dynamically create checkboxlist items...

Dim chk As New CheckBox
   With chk
        AddHandler chk.CheckStateChanged, AddressOf chkBox_CheckedChanged
        .Name = strName

In that checkstatechanged event, I'm trying to set another created control's name based off the checkbox's name:

    Private Sub chkBox_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim cbo as New CustomCombo
        cbo.Name = "Primary " & chkBox.Name

but that gives me the error: Name 'chkbox' is not declared

How can I get around this?

Here's a case where you can use the sender parameter:

Private Sub chkBox_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim cbo as New CustomCombo
        Dim chkBox As CheckBox = DirectCast(sender, CheckBox)
        cbo.Name = "Primary " & chkBox.Name

I don't think you can have a space in a control name however...
