I am creating a program to edit a database using c#2008 with visual studios 2008. I want to click a button that I have made and it execute the a button on the binding navigator tool bar. This is so it is more user friendly.

For example I want to be able to click a button I have made for adding a new entry and it execute the plus button on the binding navigator tool bar.

I am using the code
cmdAddUser.Click += new System.EventHandler(bindingNavigatorAddNewItem_Click);

this however will only execute any code that I have put into the 'bindingNavigatorAddNewItem_Click' not the database functionality. I want it to execute the database functionality as well. How do I do that?

Many thanks in advance
David

Add another eventhandler to the button.
cmdAddUser.Click += new System.EventHandler(bindingNavigatorAddNewItem_Click);
cmdAddUser.Click += new System.EventHandler(myEvent);
 
 
// myEvent needs to have these two parameters and void returntype to fit the EventHandler delegate.
void myEvent(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //do database stuff
}

The above comment only allows for a second event to be run from one click.  Unfortanlty i have run out of time for this project.
