Declaration Within DataList Not Working

I have the below datalist, and EVERYTHING is working great.  I am trying to add a SIMPLE label as you will see "lblPostedData" and call a routine on click of the button "BtnSubmit".  Basically, on the click of this button I need to post something to the label.  Problem that lies in that for some reason (odd to me, but maybe not so odd because this is the first attempt at doing this in a datalist) is that nothing seems to be declared.  So doing a simple lblPostedData.Text doesn't even work.  I sort of browsed around and found that a Repeater may work better, but same results here and would like to stick with the DataList.
<asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server">
                    
                         <ItemTemplate>
                            <table style="width: 696px; height: 1px">
                                <tr>
                                    <td style="width: 548px; height: 10px; background-color: white">
                                    </td>
                                </tr>
                                <tr>
                                    <td style="width: 548px; background-color: white; height: 402px;">
                                        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Details") %>                                        
                                        <FCKeditorV2:FCKeditor ID="FCKeditor1" runat="server" BasePath="/fckeditor/" Height="400px" Width="700px">
                                        </FCKeditorV2:FCKeditor>
                                    </td>
                                </tr>
                                <tr>
                                    <td style="width: 548px; height: 10px; background-color: white">
                                        <asp:Button ID="BtnSubmit" runat="server" OnClick="BtnSubmit_Click" Text="Submit" /></td>
                                </tr>
                                <tr>
                                    <td style="width: 548px; height: 10px; background-color: white">
                                        <asp:Label ID="lblPostedData" runat="server"></asp:Label></td>
                                </tr>
                            </table>
                        </ItemTemplate>
                    
                    </asp:DataList>

FYI, I tried this with no luck either

    Protected Sub DataList1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListItemEventArgs)
        Dim mylab As Label
        mylab = e.Item.FindControl("lblPostedData")
        mylab .Text = "THIS IS A TEST"
    End Sub

Hi

Also I can't see any event handlers declaration for the function DataList1_ItemDataBound to be handled when the data is binded for DataList1
