Visual Studio on click

hi I am using visual studio to connect to a database and update a database table

please see code

Public Class DatabaseConn

    Private Sub DatabaseConn_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim objConnection As SqlClient.SqlConnection = New _
        SqlClient.SqlConnection("Server=svricassql5;Database=pubs;Trusted_Connection=yes")

        Dim queryStr As String = "INSERT INTO authors " & _
        "(au_id,au_lname,au_fname, Contract) " & _
        "VALUES(30,'testtesttest','au_fname',1)"
        Dim objCommand As SqlClient.SqlCommand = New SqlClient.SqlCommand(queryStr, objConnection)

        objCommand.Connection.Open()

        objCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()

        objCommand.Connection.Close()

       
    End Sub


This all works well but what I would like to do now is using the above code update the database table only when a button is clicked, can anyone give me an example of this please?

Thanks

You can add a button and do something like this:
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim objConnection As SqlClient.SqlConnection = New _
        SqlClient.SqlConnection("Server=svricassql5;Database=pubs;Trusted_Connection=yes")
        Dim queryStr As String = "INSERT INTO authors " & _
        "(au_id,au_lname,au_fname, Contract) " & _
        "VALUES(30,'testtesttest','au_fname',1)"
        Dim objCommand As SqlClient.SqlCommand = New SqlClient.SqlCommand(queryStr, objConnection)
        objCommand.Connection.Open()
        objCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
        objCommand.Connection.Close()
 
    End Sub
