Dynamic Event not firing on button click.

I have a problem in calling a dynamically contructed event on a button click(which is also dynamic).

I have an server side ASP.NET button when clicked generates two dynamic buttons, 'Yes' and 'No'. When clicked on one of these two buttons i need to call an dynamically contructed event which i am unable to call. Not sure what the problem is. Clicking on Yes must display 'Hello' and click on No must display 'Hi'. I have to call that event.

Below is the code i have written.

C# code:

using System;

using System.Data;

using System.Configuration;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.Security;

using System.Web.UI;

using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;

using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)




protected void btnNextYes_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)




protected void btnNextNo_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)




protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)




private void CreateControls()


Label lblNextQuestion = new Label();

//lblNextQuestion.ID = "lblNextQuestion";// +next;

//lblNextQuestion.Text = question;

Button btnNextYes = new Button();

btnNextYes.ID = "btnNextYes123";// +next;

btnNextYes.Text = "Yes";

btnNextYes.Click += new EventHandler(btnNextYes_Click);

btnNextYes.CommandArgument = "btnNextYesArg";

btnNextYes.CommandName = "btnNextYesCmdName";

Button btnNextNo = new Button();

btnNextNo.ID = "btnNextNo123";// +next;

btnNextNo.Text = "No";

btnNextNo.Click += new EventHandler(btnNextNo_Click);

btnNextNo.CommandArgument = "btnNextNoArg";

btnNextNo.CommandName = "btnNextNoCmdName";

Label lblNextQuestionSolution = new Label();

lblNextQuestionSolution.ID = "lblNextQuestionSolution";// +next;

//lblNextQuestionSolution.Visible = false;

//lblNextQuestionSolution.Text = solution;








ASPX Code:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head runat="server">

<title>Untitled Page</title>



<form id="form1" runat="server">


<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" OnClick="Button1_Click" />

<asp:Panel ID="pnlNextQuestionPanel" runat="server" Height="50px" Width="125px">







Please help me in this regard.

Many thanks in advance.

You must recreate dynamically created control on every post back. So, add this in Page_Load event:

        if (ViewState["AddControls"] != null)
and add this at the end of CreateControls() function:
ViewState["AddControls"] = true;

 It is Correct but there is a minor Problem

When  you check viewstate and call function it render yes and no buttons when button click event call it render again

then multiple yes and no buttons shows 

so use this on page load

make viewstate null on page load

if (ViewState["AddControls"] != null)
            ViewState["AddControls"] = null;

Good point, but wrong code. If he would use that code, he wouldn't achieve his first goal. So, right thing to do would be to modify Button1_Click event like this:
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (ViewState["AddControls"] == null)

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.

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...

I am not completely new to programming but relatively new to .Net.I have created a user control that generates a file upload panel in code.

Multiple Button controls on form not firing Click event
There is probably a better way to do this, but here is what is going on. Imagine two "div" sections that contain images that have been tiled. One div contains all of the images that belong to a product, the other div contains the library of images you may want to assign to the product. Under each image in the library section is a Button control "Add". Under each image in the "Assigned to product" div there is a "Remove" Button control to remove it from the product. I'm trying to provide functionality where the user can simply click "Add&q...

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...

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 ...
