Hi,

You can get the control which caused postback as below.

 
 
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (IsPostBack)
            {
                Control c = null;

                string controlName = Page.Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET");

                if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(ctrlName))
                {
                    c = page.FindControl(ctrlName);
                }

            }
        }
