Once button is clicked, it will go to Event handler body and there you can do further processing.

this.btnNext.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.btnNext_Click);

private void btnNext_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  // Code for further processing

Open in new window

Let me know if you need further help.

Using designer, In order to add event for this button, do following:

1. Go to designer
2. Double click the desired button

This will add event handling code to your form.

Hi, you can check by following way

bool bBtnClicked = false;

    private void cmdOne_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
        if ((bBtnClicked == true)) {
            MessageBox.Show("This button is clicked already ....");
        else {
            MessageBox.Show("This button is clicked First time ....");
        bBtnClicked = true;

You have created a button:
using the folowing code you're adding a event handler upon the Button
this.btnNext.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.btnNext_Click);

An Event handler is called when you perform the action upon the Control :
In this case : Click btnNext

So when you click your button the handler is called that is going to perform the set Method

private void btnNext_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  // Code for further processing

What is the difference between this and your code ???
==> The if condition is setting the Click_Event handler and can't be used as condition.
