"View Report" button on rdl file calling _click event of another control on .aspx file

I have a .aspx file that includes a ReportViewer control (ver.  The .aspx also includes a linkbutton (lbPrint) that generates .pdf version of the report and allows the user to download it.

Once this linkbutton is used (successfully) then using the "View Report" button on the actual report causes the linkbuttons click event to be called and the sender is shown as the linkbutton.

Has anyone seen this behavior?  Is there a way to prevent this?
Protected Sub lbPrint_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lbPrint.Click
      Dim streamids As String() = Nothing
      Dim mimeType As String = Nothing
      Dim encoding As String = Nothing
      Dim extension As String = Nothing
      Dim bytes As Byte()
      Dim sFileName As String = ""
      Dim cred As New ReportServerCredentials("rs", "XXX", "xxx.xx.1234")
      ReportViewer2.ServerReport.ReportServerCredentials = cred
      ReportViewer2.ShowCredentialPrompts = False
      ReportViewer2.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = New Uri(resnet.Globals.Config.ReportServerPath)
      sFileName = "Exportable_Unit_Training_Summary.pdf"
      ReportViewer2.ServerReport.ReportPath = resnet.Globals.Config.ReportSubPath & "/TrainingSummaryFlatForUnit"
      params(0) = New Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportParameter("MemberID", CStr(CurrentMember.MemberID))
      bytes = ReportViewer2.ServerReport.Render("PDF", Nothing, mimeType, encoding, extension, streamids, Nothing)
      Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=" & sFileName)
      Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
   Catch ex As Exception
   End Try
End Sub

I have never seen that before.  Does your label overlap your View Report button in any way?  Also, post the code for your View Report button.
JackWootenAuthor Commented:
The view report button is defined in the .rdl file created by the reporting service reports project.
Try setting focus on another control at the end of your lblprint_click event to see if it is a focus issue.  Anything else on the form.

The answer was to change the linkbutton to a regular button.  This seems to keep the focus and prevent calling the click event.
