WithEvents in VB 2005

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
Any suggestions why I get the following error: "Handles clause requires a WithEvents variable defined in the containing type or one of its base types"? It occurs on the "emlbutton" of "handles emailbutton.click." I'm a newbie so maybe this is just something simple I'm overlooking...

Public Shared Sub emlbutton_click(ByVal subject As String, ByVal messageBody As String, _
        ByVal fromAddress As String, ByVal toAddress As String, ByVal ccAddress As String) Handles emlbutton.click

Idle Mind,
Your are correct. I tried to to view my file in design time but VB is telling me I have errors (however, I can still view in a browser). So let's back track a little...
The error is "Cannot switch views: Validation (XHTML 1.0 Transitional): Element 'link' cannot be nested within element 'html'. " I must admit that I cheated a little in that I copied and pasted from a html view source file as that was all I had access to at the time and I need the css style sheet.  Here are the "links" that are causing the problem. I guess I don't understand why the links cannot be nested within html when the entire page is html.


<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.mulliganagain.com/wp-content/themes/default/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="&#8220;I&#8217;ll take my Mulligan now!&#8221; RSS Feed" href="http://www.mulliganagain.com/?feed=rss2" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="&#8220;I&#8217;ll take my Mulligan now!&#8221; Atom Feed" href="http://www.mulliganagain.com/?feed=atom" />
<link rel="pingback" href="http://www.mulliganagain.com/xmlrpc.php" />

<link rel="wlwmanifest" type="application/wlwmanifest+xml" href="http://www.mulliganagain.com/wp-includes/wlwmanifest.xml" />

I'm glad we've narrowed down the problem...but unfortunately I have NO clue when it comes to web programming.  I simply focused on the core WithEvents/Handles error....   =(
