Hello Dear Experts
In my Windows-Form application, and upon its main form load event, I query my database to get a dataset of records.
The number of those records changes from time to another. Sometimes myDataset.Tables(0).Rows.C
ount = 3 and some other times it's 4 and another time it's 10, so it depends.
I want to create a TextBox control for each single record of them at run time, as well as I want to bind a "Click" Event Handler Event for each of those runtime-created TextBox controls. So this is the code I use to do so:
Dim MyTextBox(myDataset.Tables(0).Rows.Count ) As TextBox
For i = 0 To myDataset.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
MyTextBox(i) = New TextBox
MyTextBox(i).Parent = Me
MyTextBox(i).ReadOnly = True
MyTextBox(i).Multiline = True
MyTextBox(i).Enabled = False
MyTextBox(i).Size = New System.Drawing.Size(... Some Size Here ...)
MyTextBox(i).BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle
MyTextBox(i).TabIndex = 0
MyTextBox(i).TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Left
MyTextBox(i).Name = "MyTextBox" + i.ToString
MyTextBox(i).Text = "MyTextBox_Text_" + i.ToString
MyTextBox(i).Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Tahoma", 8.0!, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold)
MyTextBox(i).Location = New Point(... Some Location Here ...)
AddHandler MyTextBox(i).Click, AddressOf MyTextBox_Click
This will create for me a total of (myDataset.Tables(0).Rows.
Count) TextBox controls in my main form at run time, having each one of those controls being bound to a "Click" event handler that is taken care of by the "MyTextBox_Click" method which has the following definition:
Private Sub MyTextBox_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
Dim TxtBox As TextBox = DirectCast(sender, TextBox)
This is what I know about how to enable an Event Handler at run time for a runtime-created control in my form.
Now, when I run my application and see those runtime created TextBox controls, then I click on any of them, I'm supposed to have a MsgBox popup for me with some text in it, but the issue is: nothing happens, no MsgBox popup at all.
I even run my application in Debug Mode and discovered that the applicatoin does not even call this "MyTextBox_Click" function when I click on any of the runtime-created TextBox control.
Anyone has any idea why? Am I missing something here?
