Dynamic linkbutton not triggering event

I have a series of LinkButtons that are generated in a for loop:

...
     Dim myLink As New LinkButton
     myLink.Text = "[Edit]"
     myLink.CommandName = "Jump"
     myLink.CommandArgument = dtrReader("stepID")
     myLink.ID = "lbtnEdit_st" + intStep.ToString()
     AddHandler myLink.Click, AddressOf Edit_Click
     phInputTables.Controls.Add(myLink)
...

When I click the LinkButton, Edit_Click does not run. The page posts back but the specified event sub is never triggered... how do I get the LinkButton to trigger the event handler?

Example from my code:

  AddHandler linkName.LinkClicked, AddressOf ChartLinkClicked

  Private Sub ChartLinkClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs)

  End Sub 'ChartLinkClicked'

That's the same code as I am using, except you're using a LinkLabel, so the eventargs is slightly different.

OK, I figured it out. The sub that added the events in the first place wasn't called on postback, so the events weren't re-added when the controls were dynamically built the second time around.
