Answer to Question #10349 in C# for Michael Sheroff

Question #10349
I am trying to fire an event, by clicking a button, and it does not fire. The id is "Update". Instead of going to the event handling paragraph, code goes to the Page_Load method and skips the Update_Click method. The event is wired to the Update_Click method. I have done this before, and never had a problem. (The Update_Click) method is created by double clicking the button “Update”). For example – public partial class WebForm2 : System.Web.UI.Page { public string employee; public decimal employeeDec; public string empName; public string date1; public string date2; public List<AccessForm> AccessFormList; // following code skipped protected void Update_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { AccessFormUpdateDB.UpdateSelectedEmployee(AccessFormList); } //code executes here protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { employee = ((TextBox)Page.Pr
Expert's answer
There could be several reasons. But the most probable is that your event is not subscribed. You can do it in the markup <asp:Button
runat="server" id="Update" OnClick="Update_Clikck"/> or in code-behind on in
the Init or Page load event:

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)


Update.Click += Update_Click;


Also make sure you don't have anywhere in the code something that overrides event subscription or reinitializes button like Update=new Button();
