button click event not firing for dynamic buttons added on PreRender of the updatepanel

i have a webpage with an updatepanel updatepanel1.
i am adding controls dynamically to the updatepanel on the prerender event.
i am using the prerender event as i want to get the latest bata from the
database which include the data i have inserted on my last button click.
But the button click event is not getting trigged on clicking the button.
Here is the sample code in PreRender

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT Heading, ID FROM tblNews ORDER BY ID
;", conn);
SqlDataReader sqlData =

while (sqlData.Read())
lblHeading = new Label();
lblHeading.Font.Bold = true;
lblHeading.Text = sqlData.GetValue(0).ToString()+"<br/>";

btnDelete = new Button();
btnDelete.ID = sqlData.GetValue(1).ToString();
btnDelete.Style.Add("float", "right");
btnDelete.Text = "Delete";
btnDelete.Click += new EventHandler(btnDelete_Click);

Can someone let me know what is the problem?
How i can overcome that problem.

Thanks in Advance.

in order for dynamically created controls to raise events, they must be re-added to the page on all subsequent postbacks by page_load at the latest.

You have to add the control on each postback with same ID.

The ID's are important for the event mechanism.

Just look the following article, you will get an idea

I am saving the user entered data to the database on another static button click event on the page.
I want the latest data to be displayed.
i am not getting the latest data if i populate the dynamic controls at page load, as the button click event is firing only after the page load event.

Is there any way that i could display the latest data from the database and at the same time add dynamic controls??

Thanks for your reply.

Dynamically loaded user control with a button doesn't fire its button click event?
I have a datagrid, in which one of the columns is 'button' column called 'Send Email'. When I click on this button, then an email user control is dynamically loaded into a placeholder above the datagrid header area. The email control renders correctly, but when I click on 'Send' button in this user control, then the click event of this 'Send' button doesn't fire. This is even though the 'Handles.btnSend.Click' is there for the click method of the 'Send' button. Can someone please tell me why the event is not firing and what do I need to do to make it fire?    sun21170 you have...

Button click event not fired for a custom webpart where controls are added dynamically.
We are migrating a Sharepoint 2003 site to MOSS 2007 and ASP.NET 2.0. We have also migrated the webparts but they are still inheriting from Sharepoint.WebPart. We have a webpart where controls are added dynamically at runtime. On this webpart a button is added dynamically and a click event handler is also attached. The button on the webpart is displayed only when there is some data. The button deletes the selected row of data when clicked. But when we click on the button, the page gets posted but the event handler is not called. We analysed and found that the code where we add the button to one of the table cells does not get executed. That means that the button is added to the webparts control collection but not to any other container's control collection and hence not added on the webpart. The button does not get displayed and event is also not handled. When we add the button forcefully to one of the container table, the event gets executed. Where are we going wrong? Or Is it an ASP.NET 2.0 limitation. Please note that this same code works extermely fine in ASP.NET 1.1 and Sharepoint 2003. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks.   I didn't see the code so can't say what exactly the problem it is. But develop customization webpart under Sharepoint 2003 and ASP.NET is NOT same as developement under Sharepoint 2007. Under 2007 the webpart are inheriting the namespace System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts. So pleas...

By adding a ButtonColumn, whenever one of the DataGrid's buttons in the column is clicked, the Web page posts back and the DataGrid's ItemCommand event fires.
