    button array event handler

    Hi all,

    i'm using an array of button, and i would like to manage the click event of each button in a different way.

    this is part of my code:

     array<System::Windows::Forms::Button^>^ pics;

    this->pics = (gcnew array<Button^>(101));

    for(int i=0;i<101;i++){
    	pics[i] = gcnew Button();
    	pics[i]->Click += gcnew System::EventHandler(this , &GraphForm::pics_Click);

    private: System::Void pics_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) { }

    I tried to send the button array index (i) as parameter to the handler, but this is not allowed, and from "sender" i can not get a usefulk information to understand which button was clicked.

    Thanks a lot for your time,

    I'm not really experienced at using managed code from within C++, but is it possible to cast System::Object to a System::Windows::Forms::Button and get to the button's properties like Name or Tag? If so, you could just set the Name or Tag for each button to something unique.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    What are you actually trying to accomplish through this by the way? This seems a convulated way of doing something but I'm not sure what it is you're trying to do as the main objective outside of this.
