how to handle a c# activex event from javascript RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-2011553829 posted

    I have this Test control :

    interface EventsInterface
        void myEvent();
    public partial class Test : UserControl
        public delegate void Event();
        public event Event myEvent;
        public Test()
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    Which only has one button.

    I'm testing the control in this html page:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <object id="Control" classid="CLSID:0002EA9A-0BAF-4A9C-8300-7E4D7D371445"/>
        <script for="Control" event="myEvent()">

    When I click the button in IE 8 it's supposed to alert("hello") but instead it throws a NullPointerException that myEvent is null So this means the event handler is not set from javascript.

    Why doesn't it work ? and how to make it work ?.

    By the way I'm testing the page using the 64bit version of IE on windows 7.

    I tried signing my assembly but it didn't work, all my googling reveals that my code is right so why isn't it working ? what should I do ?

    I googled so much , all google results are telling me that my code is right.  

    I tried putting new keyword before my event and it didn't succeed. 

    Please help me , I'm stuck
