ASP.NET + Dynamically Generated LinkButton Not firing Command

I am dynamically generating Linkbuttons on a page depending on how many rows pulled from a datatable.  The problem is when i click the button nothng happens.

I belive it is because when the page postbacks the buttons need to be created again, but I am not sure how to do this as the linkbuttons are generated from the datatable.

                LinkButton lnkbtn = new LinkButton();

                lnkbtn.ID = "Home_" + (Count);
                lnkbtn.Text = HomeTeamName;
                lnkbtn.CommandArgument = homesupCID;
                lnkbtn.CommandName = "ViewScores";
                lnkbtn.EnableViewState = true;
                lnkbtn.Command += new CommandEventHandler(LinkButton_Command);

    void LinkButton_Command(object sender, CommandEventArgs e)

        var lb = (LinkButton)sender;


Open in new window

HomeTeamName, homesupCID are populated from the databable, there is other data from the datatable used for other things inside the function.

How do i get this to work ?

You have to make sure the DataTable is re-created on postback. You can hide the DataTable until if/when it is needed.
