I have a function that is run off a button on the form but wish to call it from another normal function were i do not have the mouse pos set up for the event e

private void btnConnect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

i can use
btnConnect_Click("contact", EventArgs e)
its looking for {X = 33 Y = 10 Button = Left}  System.EventArgs  System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs}

but not sure how to recreate the EventArgs e varable that the function wants

Argument '2': cannot convert from 'string' to 'System.EventArgs'

Hi sydneyguy,

just create antoher method that does the same thing the btnConnect_Click method does, but takes only the X- and Y-coordinates as input parameters (if that's all you need). You can then call this new method from inside the btnConnect_Click and wherever you want.

Hope that helps,
Frank

why do you want  to call that event handler? Instead refactor the event handler code into a method and call that method in both event handler and you normal function  something like below

private void btnConnect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Connect();
}
private void Connect()
{
}
private void NormalMethod()
{
  Connect();
}

Does not work?

You could create EventArgs like any other object
new EventArgs();

new MouseEventArgs() { Button=MouseButtons.Left,Location = new Point(33,10)}

If you're not actually using the coords in the code then just use:

    btnConnect.PeformClick();

Just use the PerformClick() method of the Button you want to click...

I suggested on how you could create EventArgs and MouseEventArgs. You cannot use the lines as is.

I agree with Idle_mind that you are better off using PerformClick() method of the button.
