accessing click event of button added dynamically

Hi my problem is this - I want to dynamically include a button in the cell of a table I have created on an aspx page in VWD, and be able to refer to the button's click event in code. However, I can't seem to access the click event in code, as I haven't physically placed the button on the aspx page. How do I access the button events without physically placing the button on the form. I am coding in VB.Net.  Here's what I've managed to work out so far:

Protected WithEvents btnView As Button

Protected Sub DisplayRecords(ByVal recShort As ShortRecord)
    Dim btnView As New Button

    AddHandler btnView.Click, AddressOf btnView_Click
    .....more code.....

End Sub

Protected Sub
btnView_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnView.Click
   .... some code.....
End Sub

When I run the code and click on the button, the event isn't captured by my btnView_click event handler.  Any ideas?

In order for dynamically added controls to function correctly, they need to be recreated on each and every postback.

So, in the postback that was triggered by your dynamically added Button,  you need to re-add that button (and the event handler) early in the page life cycle (Page_Load at the latest) if you want the event to fire.

yes, usually you must add the button in the page_Load event,

but, if you want to dynamically add a button in a sub, refer to this

hope it helps

Dynamically adding buttons to web form and wiring up the onclick event.
I have a web form that is generated at runtime with a number of dynamically created buttons. Creating the buttons is easy, but wiring them up is not. I would love to use the cold behind and a single onclick event. Then based on the id, I can call a single method that does an operation. Each button will perform the same tasks. The user can chose one of three tasks. I though I would either have a dropdown or three radio buttons for this. Alternatively, I could have some javascript, but I am not quiet sure how to post back with javascript and if all the buttons will make it more difficult. Does...

Dynamically loaded Web User Control .ascx button click event handler not called on second time click
I have an ascx control (that performs actions for an entity) being added dynamically to accordion panes, and then the panes are added to an ajax accordion control, so that the accordion can contain multiple panes with each pane containing one ascx control. The ascx control contains a delete button which removes the entity from the database. Once the entity is removed, I need to reflect this deletion in the parent page by removing the accordion pane from the accordion. To do this I created a delegate function and which is called from the parent page to rebind the accordion and hence not d...

Hello There, not sure if this is exactly the right place to post this question but here it goes: I am creating a website that has a shopping cart on the MasterPage, in the content page I want to dynamically create item listings.  Each item listing needs to have a LinkButton, that when clicked, adds the item to the shopping cart.  Upon further investigation I found that to create the dynamic controls they need to be in the Page_Init Procedure.  So I have them there, the problem I am having is making the Dynamic link buttons attach to the procedure I want them to.  I foun...

Adding click event handler to a dynamically created button
This question has been asked many times in different forums but none of the answers have solved my issue yet. There must be something I'm missing. I am creating buttons on-the-fly and want to assign an eventhandler to each of their click events (the same eventhandler, as I assume that I'll be able to determine the unique sender from the input param).

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 ...
