Converting a project from C# to VB.NET and having trouble coding the event handler.
Here is sample from C# and VB.NET   Need to know how to enable the event handler in VB

   public class RowControl
        public delegate void AddNewRowEventHandler(object sender, EventArgs e);
        public event AddNewRowEventHandler AddNewRowEvent;

on form: collectionslist

      private void AddNewRow(int rowIDX)
            RowControl control = new RowControl(ramCustomersDict, rowControlsList, rowIDX);  //row 0 is column headers
            control.stopLabel.Text = rowIDX.ToString();
            control.AddNewRowEvent += new RowControl.AddNewRowEventHandler(this.AddNewRowEvent);

        private void AddNewRowEvent(object sender, EventArgs e)
            RowControl rc = rowControlsList.Last();
            if (rc.customerIdTextBox.Text.Length > 0 && rc.addressTextbox.Text.Length > 0)
                int rowIDX = rowControlsList.Count + 1;

Now in VB, I have this:

Public Class RowControl
    Public Delegate Sub AddNewRowEventHandler(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    Public Event AddNewRowEvent As AddNewRowEventHandler

on the form:
   Private Sub AddNewRow(rowIDX As Integer)
        dim control as New RowControl(ramCustomersDict, rowControlsList, rowIDX)
        'row 0 is column headers
        control.stopLabel.Text = rowIDX.ToString()

        control.AddNewRowEvent() += New RowControl.AddNewRowEventHandler(AddressOf Me.AddNewRowEvent)
    End Sub

    Private Sub AddNewRowEvent(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Dim rc As RowControl = rowControlsList.Last
        If rc.customerIdTextBox.Text.Length > 0 AndAlso rc.addressTextbox.Text.Length > 0 Then
            Dim rowIDX As Integer = rowControlsList.Count + 1
        End If
    End Sub

SO my question is....How do I get my event raised?

I am getting the error saying i Need to call raiseevent, but when I try to enter the code for raiseevent, nothing appears.
