I have a class that I want to use several instances of... the class raises events to notify me of completed things.

everything works fine as 1 instance... however if i try to make an array of the class i get the error:

 'WithEvents' variables cannot be typed as arrays

is there a better way to do this?

You'll have to use a collection of your objects, then use AddHandler on each item in the collection to handle each objects events.

Hello mcainc,

The way to overcome this is as per snippet

Regards,

Dabas
Private WithEvents client As IRCClient 
Private ClientArray() as IRCClient 
Somewhere else in your code, you might have something like: 
For Each client in ClientArray
...Raise your events here for the single client within the array
Next
