I'm unfamiliar with VB and scripting it inside of HTML (.aspx page) I have a segment that I'm trying to get working but am having trouble with one line.

        Protected Overrides Sub OnInit(e As EventArgs)
            InitializeComponent()
            MyBase.OnInit(e)
        End Sub

        Private Sub InitializeComponent()
            Me.ibSearch.Click += New System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventHandler(Me.ibSearch_Click)
            //IN THE LINE ABOVE, I'M BEING TOLD THAT I NEED TO USE 'RaiseEvent'? BUT I'M 
            //SURE THERE'S MORE TO IT AND SOMETHINGS THAT I'M MISSING BUT I'M TOO
           //UNFAMILIAR TO KNOW WHAT. HELP
        End Sub
        
        Sub ibSearch_Click(sender As Object, e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs)
            ' Get search terms
            Dim searchTerms As String = txtSearchTerms.Text

            ' Check search terms
            If searchTerms IsNot Nothing Then
                ' Set search output page
                Dim outUrl As String = Page.Request.Path

                ' Build query string
                Dim queryStr As String = (outUrl & "?usterms=" & searchTerms & "&ustype=") + ddlSearchType.SelectedValue

                ' Redirect to search output page
                Page.Response.Redirect(queryStr, True)
            End If
        End Sub

Open in new window


        Private Sub InitializeComponent()
            Me.ibSearch.Click += New System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventHandler(Me.ibSearch_Click)
            //IN THE LINE ABOVE, I'M BEING TOLD THAT I NEED TO USE 'RaiseEvent'? BUT I'M
            //SURE THERE'S MORE TO IT AND SOMETHINGS THAT I'M MISSING BUT I'M TOO
           //UNFAMILIAR TO KNOW WHAT. HELP
        End Sub

Try:
Private Sub InitializeComponent()
	AddHandler Me.lbSearch.Click, AddressOf Me.ibSearch_Click
End Sub

Open in new window

Or
Sub ibSearch_Click(sender As Object, e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Handles Me.lbSearch.Click
	' Get search terms
	Dim searchTerms As String = txtSearchTerms.Text

	' Check search terms
	If searchTerms IsNot Nothing Then
		' Set search output page
		Dim outUrl As String = Page.Request.Path

		' Build query string
		Dim queryStr As String = (outUrl & "?usterms=" & searchTerms & "&ustype=") + ddlSearchType.SelectedValue

		' Redirect to search output page
		Page.Response.Redirect(queryStr, True)
	End If
End Sub

Open in new window


With the first code block you add an handler.  However, vb allows you to assign the handler directly to the method that the event raises.  So if you use the second code block, remove the code in the first code block.
