As for the custom Form i declare it this way;
Dim WithEvents Ev As New MyDll.MyClass

but when i try to public it, to work plus on another Form, the Events "Ev " isnt displayed on the other Form.
How i can manage this i tried many options i played with shared, public, friend...

What do you mean "displayed"? Why do you think it should be "displayed"? What are you trying to achieve?

You only use Dim inside a method.

In your case, at the class leve, you remove the Dim and replace it with Public or Private depending on the visibility you want.

I have tried it with public too but no result, please re-read my question, thanks

To get it to work on multiple forms, I'm guessing it would have to be put in a Module, not a class.

I'm not really sure as, in 30+ years of writing code, I've never had a need to do what you're doing.

30 years of coding, damn youre a killer bro. to my question i have a dll file with a class where therein will be raised some events. Now i have in my current project 2 windows forms, and i need on both forms to get the raised events of that "mydll.myclass" trying to declare the same dll from both forms it gave me overflow errors since i use win APIs. Now i thought i only declare the withevents as public to access them from overall, but thats not the case, in form1 it shows it as expected but on the other form the event(which are shown in blue) is missing? that was my question.
For example i write this;
Dim WithEvents Ev As New mydll.myclass
and in same moment above on the current forms topbar there is shown the class of the dll in blue color and a bit to the right, i can chose for example which event to call, e.g like (example of Timer()) gotfocus, keypressed you know what i mean, and thats what i want to achieve without declaring it 2 times for each form since the app crashes(overflow exception) because of APIs i use. i want to achieve the same infos but synchronyosly on both forms. i want not to get ugly declaring variables of form2 from form1.
Maybe this is not the best descriptipon of my problem but i hope you got it
Thanks for the reply and sorry for the inconvienence

You're describing things like I can see your monitor. The description isn't complete at all.

But, from what it sounds like, you could declare the object in a Module and make it public, then you'll have to wire up the event handlers in your forms yourself. You're not going to get the IDE to help you do this as the object is visible to the forms code, but it is not part of either form.

Just Google for "AddHandler" and you'll see how to do it.
