What are you looking to do currently, is there something specific you 
want to accomplish?

You are sending a block, so this could be multi-line with do/end . Also, 
(depending on the context of your program), you could forgo the |sender, 
args| :

button.click do
 puts "Something..."
 puts "Very interesting.."

I've attached a very simple Windows Forms app which shows this method of 
hooking up an event, firing it manually through code, and then bringing 
up the GUI...
