Hi all,

I have a variable of type Button that I get from a call back on a form.
Just having this variable, is there a way to find the button's Click event
handler?
Just to be clear - when I assign it myself, like so:

Button b = new Button();
b.Click += new EventHandler(this.button_Click);

I obviously know that button_Click function gets called -
that's what I need to find out for the variable.

Thank you,

Gene

I don't understand your question, and what you mean by "that's what I need to find out for the variable"

Do you mean typeof(Button).GetType().GetEvents()?

I mean that particular Button reference to which I have, not Button as a class

That would be slightly different:

button1.GetType().GetEvents()?

What do you to know from the EventInfo?

Looks like I'm getting EventHandlerType, but not an EventHandler handler, so I could remove an event, like this:

button1.Click -= new EventHandler(<EventHandler >);

Where do you need to do this?  Do you have a reference to the control, and you need to do it dynamically?

The control is in a dll.
By iterating the Controls collection, I find the control I need, and I need to replace the control's Click EventHandler with my own.

That is possible with reflection.  The steps are shown in the code from this CodeProject article:
