asp:button event not firing


C

Hi guys,

I posted regarding this issue the other day but i still dont have an
answer to my problem.

Basically i have imported asp.net pages from dreamweaver into visual
studio. Ive added a few controls that ive copied in from another
asp.net page that i built within visual studio. The problem is that the
asp:button does not fir an event and therefore my code behind it wont
work. The page load event is firing correctly so i think the issue
relates only to the button.

My button im using is the "btn_SearchNow" button. Can anyone tell me if
im missing any code or if they have a workaround.


Any help appreciated as i cannot seem to find a workaround.

Does your event handler have the "Handles btn_SearchNow.Click" clause at the
end of it? I have seen rare situations where this somehow gets automatically
removed, I would double check to make sure it is still there. Another easy
way to make sure something didn't accidentally get changed would be to
double-click the button in Visual Studio's Design View to see if it is
taking you to the place you think it should (If you changed the control's ID
after creating the event handler the Handles clause is not automatically
changed). Good Luck!

Thanks Nathan,

I think the handles part gets lost when you move or cut and paste a
control to another part of the page.

Unfortunately i have the handles btn_SearchNow.click so thats not the
problem

Thanks for the help .

any more ideas apprciated

I don't have any other ideas off hand. One thing I might suggest trying
would be using Visual Studio's debug feature and put a Breakpoint right at
the beginning of the event handler to see if the problem is with the handler
actually getting called or with the code inside the event handler. Good
Luck!

I would also check to be sure that IsPostBack evaluates as you think it
should. It could be that you are experiencing a problem that causes the
runtime to think you're not in a postback when you actually are.

Actually got this sorted. Turned out that there was a form tag in the
includes page but this just didnt throw an error. For whatever reason
it did not allow the the event of the button to fire.


Thanks for all the help
