Expose custom Server Control's Public Event in IDE's Properties box

Using VB.net in VS 2005 ...
I've written a custom Server Control with a Public Event

Partial Class UserControls_NSLddl
    Inherits System.Web.UI.UserControl
    Public Event BaseBidChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CommandEventArgs)
    Public Property BaseBID() As Integer
            Return cint(Me.hiddenBaseBID.Value)
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Integer)
            Me.hiddenBaseBID.Value = Value
            RaiseEvent BaseBidChanged(Me, Value)
        End Set
    End Property

'(... LOTS MORE CODE - Not shown)

End Class

Open in new window

When I use the custom control in a web page - and select it
