asp.net listview delete button not working

I have a delete button inside the item template of a listview.  When I click the button, I am redirected to the desired page without error, but the record is not deleted.  Because there is no error I am having trouble tracking down what is wrong.

here is the listview code:
<asp:ListView ID="ListView1" runat="server" DataKeyNames="idTrade" 
            <asp:HiddenField ID="idTrade" runat="server" Value='<%# Eval("idTrade") %>' />
            <div class="TradeLable">Date Trade was Entered:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="dtCreateLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# TradeDate(Eval("dtCreate")) %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Last Action Taken:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="intLastActionLabel" runat="server" 
                Text='<%# TradeAction(Eval("intLastAction")) %>' />
            <br />  <br />          
            <div class="TradeLable">Date of Last Action with Trade:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="dtLastActionLabel" runat="server" 
                Text='<%# TradeDate(Eval("dtLastAction")) %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Date of the Trade:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="dtTradeLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# TradeDate(Eval("dtTrade")) %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Platoon:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="intPlatoonLabel" runat="server" 
                Text='<%# TradeShift(Eval("intPlatoon")) %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Hall:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="intHallLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("intHall") %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Status:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="intStatusLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# TradeStatus(Eval("intStatus")) %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Shift Owner:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="chrOwnerLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("chrOwner") %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Memeber Who Has Taken the Shift:</div> 
            <asp:Label ID="chrMemeberLabel" runat="server" 
                Text='<%# Eval("chrMemeber") %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable">Email of Memeber:</div>
            <asp:Label ID="chrEmailLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("chrEmail") %>' />
            <br /> <br />           
            <div class="TradeLable">Reason for Shift Trade:</div>
            <asp:Label ID="chrReasonLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("chrReason") %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <div class="TradeLable"> Shift Details:</div>
            <asp:Label ID="chrDetailsLabel" runat="server" 
                Text='<%# Eval("chrDetails") %>' />
            <br /><br />
            <asp:Button ID="CancelButton" runat="server" Text="Cancel" PostBackUrl="~/Executive/Trade.aspx" />
            <br /><br />
            <asp:Button ID="DeleteButton" runat="server" CommandName="Delete" 
                Text="Delete" PostBackUrl="~/Executive/Trade.aspx" />
            <br />
            <br />
            <span>There was no trade record retrieved.  If you have reached this page in error, please use the link above to return to the trade managment page.</span>

edit your delete button markup to

<asp:Button ID="DeleteButton" runat="server" CommandName="Delete" 
                Text="Delete" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("id of the item you want to delete") %>' />

Open in new window

then add event call item command to the listview

and add this code to it:
protected void ListView1_ItemCommand(object sender, ListViewCommandEventArgs e)
            if (e.CommandName == "Delete")
                Trade item = db.Trades.SingleOrDefault(p => p.id == Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument));

That worked, thanks!

I use vb so here it is rewritten for VB:

    Protected Sub ListView1_ItemCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewCommandEventArgs) Handles ListView1.ItemCommand

        If String.Equals(e.CommandName, "Delete") Then
            Dim db As New EFFU_LINQDataContext
            Dim myGUID = New Guid(e.CommandArgument.ToString)
            Dim item As Trade = db.Trades.SingleOrDefault(Function(p) p.idTrade = myGUID)
        End If

    End Sub
