Hey there. I'm attempting to call a user defined function (callbyname) on a dynamically created button using add handler.

AddHandler button.Click, AddressOf CallByName(form, "function_name", CallType.Method)

Open in new window


unfortunatly i keep getting this error:
'AddressOf' operand must be the name of a method (without parentheses)

Any help would be great :)

Many Thanks
Ben

The routine you use in AddHandler *must* have the same signature as the event. So for a button's Click event, the routine will need to have an Object (sender) and EventArgs (e), like this....

    AddHandler button.Click, AddressOf Button_Click

...where the Button_Click routine looks like this....

    Public Sub Button_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        'your code
    End Sub

Hi Ben;

Try it like this.

' Create the Button
Dim dButton As New Button()
dButton.Name = "DynamicButton"
dButton.Text = "DynamicButton"
dButton.Location = New Point(10, 10)
'...
'Assign the Click event to an event handler
AddHandler dButton.Click, AddressOf DynamicButton_Click
' Add Button to the forms collection
Me.Controls.Add(dButton)




Private Sub DynamicButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

    ' Call the function to CallByName here in the event handler
    ' CallByName(form, "function_name", CallType.Method)

End Sub
