To assign an event handler to an event.

Normally in VB.Net when you select a control event, it is attached using the Handles keyword:

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

You could also assign the event programmatically using this:

AddHandler Button1.Click, AddressOf Button1_Click


This is useful when you need to control when the event is handled or if you ever need to remove the event (using RemoveHandler).

I often use AddHandler to programmatically assign the XXX_Changed event to databound controls to prevent the events from firing until after the control is loaded and databound.
