Hi murbro;

This should give you what you need. Use the AddHandler to add a click event handler to btn and give it the address of the event handler you want to give to the btn object as shown below.

Dim btn As New Button
btn.Text = "Push me!"
AddHandler btn.Click, AddressOf HandlerName

' Event handler needs the correct signature for a button click event
Private Sub HandlerName(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs)

' Handler code goes here

End Sub

Open in new window

This line of code adds the handler.

AddHandler btn.Click, AddressOf HandlerName

Where HandlerName is the name of the Sub which handles the Click event.
