VB.NET: How to Handle Events of Objects inside a Generic List

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
i developed code that works fine so far but now i would like to upgrade from a single element to multiple elements using a generic list (that´s what i thought of, maybe you know something better) so i changed my codeing from

Protected WithEvents MyObject
Protected WithEvents myList As List(Of MyObject)

i used to handle the CurrentChanged event of MyObject

so i thought i could do something lilke this

change from
Private Sub _CurrentChanged() Handles  MyObject.CurrentChanged
Private Sub _CurrentChanged() Handles MyList.ITEM.CurrentChanged

which does not work, and i did not yet find a solution for my simple problem, can anyone help ?

Kind Regards Frank
