Setting multiple buttons to one event handler in C#

To let multiple buttons have the same event handler, we can set the Click property of of every button as a new EventHandler() and pass the method to call for all events as a parameter, in below example we create 1 method called b1_Click(), and we created a new event handlers using that method new EventHandler(b1_Click);


public partial class Form1 : Form
        TextBox t = new TextBox();
        Button b1 = new Button();
        Button b2 = new Button();
        public Form1()
            t.Location = new Point(0, 0);

            b1.Location = new Point(12, 50);
            b2.Location = new Point(12, 100);
            b1.Name = "b1";
            b2.Name = "b2";
            b1.Click += new EventHandler(b1_Click);
            b2.Click += new EventHandler(b1_Click);


        void b1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Button b = (Button)sender;
            t.Text = b.Name;
