Declare and Raise an event in VB.NET
In this article you will learn how to Declare and Raise an event in VB.NET.
How to Declare an event
You have to use a keyword for declare an event that is "Event" . This event shows the progress of the task.
Code of declaration
Public Event ProgressDone(ByVal Progress As Single,
ByRef Cancel As Boolean)
The cancel argument in ByRef is used to cancel the method that raised the event, and you have to set is True for that.
How to Raise an event
First you have to Import a statement to the top of class for using timer property in Widget class.
The Progress event is raised by the Task method which is present in the Widget class. Task takes two arguments: the length of time the method, and the minimum time interval before Task pauses to raise the ProgressDone event.
Write this code in widget class
Public Sub Task(ByVal Duration As Single,
ByVal MinimumInterval As Single)
Dim Threshold As Single
Dim Start As Single
Dim Cancel As Boolean
Start = CSng(Timer)
Threshold = MinimumInterval
Do While CSng(Timer) < (Start + Duration)
If CSng(Timer) > (Start + Threshold) Then
Threshold / Duration, Cancel)
If Cancel Then Exit Sub
Threshold = Threshold + MinimumInterval
