I would like to hookup a delegate through reflection but I'm getting an Error binding to Target method.  Below is the code I'm working on:

Partial Public Class PopupTemplate
    Private Sub AddEvent(ByVal thisUIElement As UIElement)
        Dim obj As Object = thisUIElement
        Dim mfevent As EventInfo = obj.GetType().GetEvent("ItemChanged")
        Dim tDelegate As Type = mfevent.EventHandlerType
        Dim miHandler As MethodInfo = GetType(PopupTemplate).GetMethod("BtnClicked", _
                                       BindingFlags.NonPublic Or BindingFlags.Static Or BindingFlags.Instance Or BindingFlags.Public)

        Dim d As [Delegate] = [Delegate].CreateDelegate(tDelegate, miHandler)
        Dim miAddHandler As MethodInfo = mfevent.GetAddMethod()
        Dim addHandlerArgs() As Object = {d}
        miAddHandler.Invoke(obj, addHandlerArgs)
    End Sub

    Private Sub BtnClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal Value As String)

        If Value = "Save" Then
            CloseForm()
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub CloseForm()
 'Does Something
    End Sub

End Class

Partial Public Class Layout3
    Public Event ItemChanged(ByVal s As Object, ByVal Value As String)

    Private Sub Button_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs)
        RaiseEvent ItemChanged(sender, "Save")
    End Sub
End Class

I referenced the example in MSDN when creating these code.  

Thanks

Hello,

Thanks for the response unmeshdave.  I was getting an "Error binding to Target Method" error.  

I fixed my problem though.

In the addEvent, instead of writing this line of code:
Dim d As [Delegate] = [Delegate].CreateDelegate(tDelegate, miHandler)
It should have been
Dim d As [Delegate] = [Delegate].CreateDelegate(tDelegate, Me, miHandler)

Thanks,
