C# to VB.Net

Hi Experts,

I am using the following code in VB.Net to use notify icon in my WPF application. I am using Win 7 64 Bit.

=========================================================
Friend WithEvents NotIco As System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon

Private Sub Window_Initialized(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Initialized
        Dim IcoPath As String

        IcoPath = My.Settings.ApplicationIconPathWithIconName
        NotIco = New System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon()
        NotIco.Icon = New System.Drawing.Icon(IcoPath)
        NotIco.Visible = True
End Sub
===================================================================

Now I have 2 questions.

1. How to write the following line in VB.Net?
NotIco.MouseClick += new System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventHandler(NotIco_MouseClick);

If I write NotIco & then press "." no MouseClick event is there in the autocomplete lict box. How to do it?

2. If I use notify icon in WPF like this way, will it be a problem in XP SP3?

Please help,
Soumen

I have gone through that link. I wanted to know how to convert that C# line to VB.Net as MouseClick is not available after "." in VB.Net

For issue 1, type:
AddHandler NotIco.

Open in new window

Now the MouseClick will be there.

@robert_schutt:

As per your suggestion my code is as follows:

Friend WithEvents NotIco As System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon

Private Sub Window_Initialized(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Initialized
        Dim IcoPath As String

        IcoPath = My.Settings.ApplicationIconPathWithIconName
        NotIco = New System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon()
        NotIco.Icon = New System.Drawing.Icon(IcoPath)
        NotIco.Visible = True

       NotIco.AddHandler
End Sub

But it is throwing error at the end of AddHandler, it expects a comma na d probably some more thing. Can you please a little elaborative?

Regards,
Soumen

my first post specified the dot so you would see the property being shown.

my second post specified the whole line.

Maybe this is not applicable for you because you just want to convert the code but normally the easier way to implement an event handler in VB.NET is to go to the form, click on the component (NotifyIcon will be at the bottom), go to properties (F4), then click on the lightning bolt icon at the top for events and double click in the value field for the event you want to handle.
