ASP.NET Dynamic User Control Fire Parent Event in VB

I have a parent page with a simple code to load user controls. The question that I have is how can I fire MenuLinkButton_Click() on parent from loaded user control (any loaded user control) without explicitly declaring that user control on parent page?


Code provided...

Thank You

Kevin

 
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    LoadUserControl()
End Sub
Protected Sub MenuLinkButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CommandEventArgs)
    If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(e.CommandName) Then LastLoadedControl = BASE_PATH & e.CommandName & ".ascx"
    LoadUserControl()
End Sub
Private Sub LoadUserControl()
    Dim controlPath As String = LastLoadedControl
    Dim bodyPlaceHolder As ContentPlaceHolder = Master.FindControl("body")

    If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(controlPath) Then
         bodyPlaceHolder.Controls.Clear()
         Dim uc As Control = Page.LoadControl(controlPath)
         uc.ID = "loadedControl"
         bodyPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(uc)
    End If
End Sub

The idea is to run Sub MenuLinkButton_Click() on parent

I do not have a control on parent I can trigger. The loaded control will have many linkButtons to trigger controls.

But, never the less, I have found the way...

 
Protected Sub ControlLinkButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CommandEventArgs)
    Dim p As Users_Default = CType(Context.Handler, Parent_Default) 'Parent_Default As Parent Page
    p.LastLoadedControl = e.CommandName
    p.LoadUserControl()
End Sub
