ASP.NET - C# - Repeater - Get Value on Click Event

I have a repeater as shown below.  How do I get the value of the hidden field when clicking on it?

 <asp:Repeater ID="rptFiles" runat="server"
        onitemcommand="rptFiles_ItemCommand" >
    <HeaderTemplate>
        <strong>File Name</strong><br />
    </HeaderTemplate>
    <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:LinkButton ID="lbDisplayName" runat="server"
               Text="<%# ((Files)Container.DataItem).DisplayName %>" />
        <asp:HiddenField Id="hdValue" runat="server"
               value="<%# ((Files)Container.DataItem).FileName %>" /><br />
    </ItemTemplate>
    <FooterTemplate>
    </FooterTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

this means no value is bounded to it, try checking in databound event handler....

CipherISAuthor Commented:
please explain the "databound event handler"?  How do I check that?

Here is the code that is getting the data
 
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
        //Get Files
        rptFiles.DataSource = FileList.getFiles;
        rptFiles.DataBind();
}

//FILES
public class FileList
{
     static FileList()
     {
            ITransferService _getFiles = new TransferServiceClient();

            getFiles = new List<Files>();
            foreach (var files in _getFiles.APICustomerFiles("1234", false))
            {
                getFiles.Add(new Files() { DisplayName = files.DisplayName });
                getFiles.Add(new Files() { FileName = files.FileName });
            }
        }
        public static List<Files> getFiles { get; set; }
    }
}

public class Files
{
    public string DisplayName { get; set; }
    public string FileName { get; set; }
}

change the code as given below:-
public class FileList
{
     static FileList()
     {
            ITransferService _getFiles = new TransferServiceClient();

            getFiles = new List<Files>();
            foreach (var files in _getFiles.APICustomerFiles("1234", false))
            {
                getFiles.Add(new Files() { DisplayName = files.DisplayName, FileName = files.FileName  });
            }
        }
        public static List<Files> getFiles { get; set; }
    }
}
