Hi EE's

I'm facing following problem. I have to configure the EventHandler of a ToolStripButton with a string (or any other object) coming from a XML. How can I give the corresponding dll, class and function to the EventHandler?

An example:
I have a dll called MyOwnMenu.dll
In this dll I have a class called MyMenuItem1
In this class I have a (static) function called MyToolStripCall
In my main application I add an ToolStripButton
ToolStripButton myMenuButton = new ToolStripButton("myText", null, new EventHandler(XXX));

"myText" comes out of a XML and also the function to call (XXX) should be named in the xml.

Thanks a lot!

Hi elimesika,
the reflection stuff is not really new to me. What I'm looking for is a solution to give a function to an event handler. Do I have to call a Callback function and access the target function from there?
Or is there an other way to directly call the function from the event handler?

Regards,
Bruce

HI

I don't see any other option except constructing a string with DLL, class name, method and call it using reflection.
