public event usage

I am having a little trouble with this as I have never used a public event.  I have one VB.net user control that acts like a form.  There is a button on this user control that calls another user control which is also displayed like a form.  this is not a modal.  We have an interface in  place that handles these usercontrols and puts them into tabs.  basically what I think I need to do is raise a public event that will in turn call a method on the calling user control when the called user control is saved.  Any ideas?

How is the first UserControl "calling" the second one?  Does it have a reference to it?...or is it raising an event that the Form catches and then "passes" on to the second?  If one has a reference to the other already then you should be able to subscribe to a custom event that the second usercontrol raises...

this is essentially as far as I have gotten.  This is not working


Calling usercontrol

I have this in the load of the calling form

Dim _CalledUserControl As CalledUserControl = New CalledUserControl ()
            AddCalledUserControl handler(_NoticeOfLoss)  --> Adding my event

These are two sub procedures in the calling form

Public Sub AddCalledUserControl (ByVal oCalledUserControl  As CalledUserControl )

        AddHandler oCalledUserControl.Event, AddressOf CallingUserControl_LoadMethod

    End Sub

    Private Sub CallingUserControl_LoadMethod()
        LoadMethod()  ---Method I am trying to call
    End Sub


I have this declared as Global in my Called user Control
Public Event Event()

I have this when I click my save changes button
RaiseEvent Event()

Ok...not sure I follow everything but here is an example of UserControl1 creating an instance of UserControl2 and subscribing to one of its custom events:

Public Class UserControl1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim uc2 As New UserControl2
        AddHandler uc2.MyEvent, AddressOf uc2_MyEvent
        uc2.Location = New Point(Button1.Location.X, Button1.Location.Y + Button1.Height)
        Me.Controls.Add(uc2)
    End Sub

    Private Sub uc2_MyEvent()
        MessageBox.Show("MyEvent() received from uc2!")
    End Sub

End Class

Public Class UserControl2

    Public Event MyEvent()

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        RaiseEvent MyEvent()
    End Sub

End Class
