Protected WithEvents InsertButton As Button is missing in the designer file. Did you delete and recreate the control?

I added the withEvents sub, now I not getting the error but my page is not being transfered to the next page.  See the code below to see if that may help you help me.

Partial Class ContentPages_Testimonial
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 
    Protected Sub InsertButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
    Handles InsertButton.Click
        Server.Transfer("~/ContentPages/Testimonials.aspx", False)
    End Sub
 
    Protected WithEvents InsertButton As Button
 
End Class
