For each Event defined by an event source and event handler. An event source can be either a Class or an Object, there is a private field that is based on the underlying delegate type. if you use this field to track a multicast delegate object. An event source also provides a public registration method that allow you to register as many event handlers as desired. An Event handler is a delegate object that's bounds to handler method. when you create event handler(i.e. delegate object) and register it with event source, the event source simply appends the new event handler to the end of the list. if An event source then uses the private field to call invoke on the multicast delegate, Which will in turn call the registered event handlers.  

Creating and Register an Event handler:

Visual Basic .NET provide two way to create an event handler  and register it with an event source:

  • Dynamic event binding, which involves the use AddHandler keyword.

  • Static event binding, which involves the use of the WithEvent keyword.

Syntax of dynamic event binding:

AddHandler < Event >,< delegate object>

Coding for dynamic Event:

Public Delegate Sub Vchile(ByVal n1 As String)
Class Cars
    Public Event configration As Vchile  
    Public Sub nameofcar(ByVal n1 As String)
        If (n1 = "Maruti") Then
            RaiseEvent configration(n1)
            Console.WriteLine("speed is 140km/h")
            Console.WriteLine("Mileage is 14km/lit")
            Console.WriteLine("car name is Hyundi")  
        End If
    End Sub
Class Maruti
    Public Shared Sub info(ByVal n1 As String)
        Console.WriteLine("speed is 100km/h")
        Console.WriteLine("Mileage is 14km/lit")
        Console.WriteLine("car name is maruti 800 Ac")
    End Sub

    Sub Main()
        Dim obj1 As New Cars()
        Console.WriteLine("Enter (Maruti) to show information")
        Console.WriteLine("Ennter (hyundi) to show information")
        Dim x As String
        x = Console.ReadLine()
        AddHandler obj1.configration, AddressOf
    End Sub
