asp:Button onclick will not fire

I'm at a total loss here.  Here's the setup:

Got a master page with <form runat="server">... There is an ASP.NET-ized Google CSE Search bar on it which works fine.  Then there is a ContentPlaceHolder.

The child page has a simple form... 1 TextBox, 1 Button.

<asp:TextBox ID="morningEmail" runat="server" CssClass="formStyle" Columns="35" />
<asp:Button ID="morningButton" runat="server" Text="Sign Up" CssClass="formStyle" />
<asp:Label ID="morningStatus" runat="server" />

The code behind on the child page:

Sub morningSignUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles morningButton.Click
        c.sql = "INSERT INTO morningEmailAlerts (eAddress) VALUES (@eAddress)"
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand(c.sql, c.Conn)

        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@eAddress", morningEmail.Text)

        c.Conn.Open()
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        c.Conn.Close()

        morningStatus.Text = "Sign up complete!"
    End Sub

As I said, the Google bar works fine.  But the morningButton asp:Button does absolutely nothing when clicked.  No postback, no error code... I might as well be clicking white space.  Please help, this is extremely urgent.

What is a break point exactly?

Here is the generated code from the child form:

<input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$morningEmail" type="text" size="35" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_morningEmail" class="formStyle" />

<input type="submit" name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$morningButton" value="Sign Up" onclick="javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions(&quot;ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$morningButton&quot;, &quot;&quot;, true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_morningButton" class="formStyle" />

Hi,
Could you please check that morningButton is declared in the code behind..

nepali, I assume you mean a line like this?

Protected WithEvents morningButton As Button

If so, when I put that in I get:

Compiler Error Message: BC30260: 'morningButton' is already declared as 'Protected Dim WithEvents morningButton As System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button' in this class.

Source Error:

Line 8:  
Line 9:      Protected WithEvents morningButton As Button
Line 10:

yes.. That is what... I meant
So it is declared...
To check if the event method is fired.. you can either put a breakpoint and debug your code. or place a Response.Write("in button click"). Recompile and check. If you get this message on the browser then the event is getting fired. or else Copy the code in event metthod just remove and add the button again, set its event method and paste the code back into it.

Got a break point put in, but nothing happens when I compile the code.  Loads the page up fine, still no response from the button at all.

Done.  Still no dice.  Doubt it will help, but you can see it in action here:  http://dev.gastongazette.com

Search at the top works.
Morning News Signup does squat.

The url cannot be opened.  Maybe your firewall or web server blocked external request.

Does it offer anyone any hits that mousing over the button changes the status bar to just say "default.aspx"?  I've never seen a button do that.

*hip thrust of victory*

Should have caught this sooner.  The Google search bar has a RequiredFieldValidator on it and I didn't set up a separate validation group, so trying to click that button was firing a validator farther up the page.  Thanks for all the suggestions!!
