you have to pass an instance of your control to you vb class like this:-

<asp:Button id="button1" runat="server" />

code behind:-
Public Partial Class _Default
	Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
	Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
		Dim type As New MyType(button1)

	End Sub
End Class

Open in new window


vb class:-

Public Class MyType
	Private _control As Control

	Public Sub New(control As Control)
		_control = control
	End Sub
End Class

Open in new window

Simple use Array of Control in Constructor:-
Public Class MyType
	Private _control As Control()

	Public Sub New(control As Control())
		_control = control
	End Sub
End Class

Open in new window
