"my code is working now and is hint free" => Wow.

Out of interest (because I have no idea how to (reasonable) archive 
that. The most common hint in 99% of all my apps is the "Parameter 
Sender (or whatever) not used in ...".

If you use events you can not remove the parameters from your procedure 
declarations, so you get that hint...; Not that it bothers me, but if 
you got an easy solution...
