What does (ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) mean? - ASP.NET General

I just don't get what the () after the sub name does...kind of stupid question, but it would be nice to understand it. Thanks. Kathy *** Sent via Developersdex [url]http://www.developersdex.com[/url] *** Don't just participate in USENET...get rewarded for it!...

    Everything in between the parentheses is parameters. Parameters are values
    that are passed to a function or subroutine, from the code that called the
    subroutine. As the code you mentioned is an Event Handler, the parameters
    are passed by the object which raised the Event.

    Is that what you were asking?

    sir the problem is why do we need these parameters in Click Event.
    please explain sender parameter and e parameter and what is the basic function of both of them.
