Problem Calling a Function from another Function

Hi, I have a VB 2005 Windows Form and I have the following two blocks of code within my Form.

[Block 1:] (dgv is a DataGridView)   -- This code creates a handler for a Function and the Function retrieves some values from cells within a DataGridView.

AddHandler dgv.CellEnter, AddressOf dgv_CellEnter
Private Sub dgv_CellEnter(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs)
        lblEventNo.Text = "Event No:  " & Trim((dgv.Item(0, e.RowIndex).Value))
        lblEventDate.Text = "Event Date/Time:  " & Trim((dgv.Item(3, e.RowIndex).Value))
        lblEventType.Text = "Event Type:  " & Trim((dgv.Item(2, e.RowIndex).Value))
        tbxEventDescription.Text = Trim((dgv.Item(4, e.RowIndex).Value))
End Sub

[Block 2:] This block creates TabPages in a TabControl and each TabPage contains a DataGridView. The code also creates a handler for the CLICK event of the TabPages.

Dim tp As New TabPage
tp.Text = sFileName
tp.Name = sFileName
AddHandler tp.Click, AddressOf tp_click
Private Sub tp_click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TabControl1.SelectedIndexChanged
End Sub


Both blocks of code work fine.  However, I need to call the Function "dgv_CellEnter" from the " tp_click" Function when the TapPages are clicked, so that I can update the values for  lblEventNo.Text, lblEventDate.Text ,  lblEventType.Text , and  tbxEventDescription.Text.

I'm having problems calling one Function from the other Function. Is there a way to do this? I tried calling it using:

dgv_CellEnter( dgv, ???) , but I do not know what to use for "(System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs)"

Note: I would like the "SelectedCells" or Row to be Row Index = 0 each time the Selected TabPage changes.

Can someone help?
