Hi,
I'm just starting to look at Custom Controls after watching a MS video online.
Video Training - WindowsClient.net
I wondered if it's possible to get the name of the control that calls the OnEnter event that I am running.
Code:
Public Class MyComboBoxAuto
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox

    Protected Overrides Sub OnEnter(ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Try
            clsComboBoxes.GetComboList(????????)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show("error found." & vbCrLf & ex.Message, clsGeneral.ConTitle, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
        End Try

        MyBase.OnEnter(e)
    End Sub
End Class
I wanted to add a new combobox to the form and it always call this GetComboList each time OnEnter BUT I need to pass the combobox that the onEnter is firing from. Would save code and give me an insight into how custom controls work.
Thanks in advance
Scott
