I'm attempting to create a user control with a series of events.  However, by default, there are already 2^256 default events on the user control.  I want to remove ALL of these events, so the user control ONLY has the events *I* want available.  How is this doable?

Hello, Javin007,

You could Shadow the events with events of the same name that are never triggered.  In order to "hide" these ineffective events on the forms where the UserControl is located, just mark them as "obsolete".  For example:

    <Obsolete()> _
    Public Shadows Event Click()

But if there are a lot of events that you want to hide, you might be better off to create your own control directly.  (I.e. inherit from Control instead of UserControl).  To decide which is better, you must think about what functionality UserControl is giving you that will be hard to implement in your own control.

Cheers,
Randy
