ASP.NET - Button not firing up code when pressed

Hi All,

I have something really weird going on here.

on a .aspx page I have the following code as a first line:

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="cpanel3_cancel.aspx.vb" Inherits="cpanel3_cancel" %>

Then on that page, I have a button, as follows:

<asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Cancel Account" />

and on the file cpanel3_cancel.aspx.vb I have the following code:

    Protected Sub Button2_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
    End Sub

But when I click on Button2, nothing happens!

Please help!

You have to add OnClick to Button:
OnClick= "Button2_Click"
<asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Cancel Account" OnClick= "Button2_Click" />

Open in new window

I actually fixed it by setting the runat="server" in the header... so you lead me the right way. Thanks!
