The Button control provides a command button-style control that is used to post a Web Forms page back to the server.When used in a templated list such as a Repeater or DataList, many Button controls might be rendered as the list iterates over its data source. Because each of these Button controls shares the same ID, you cannot simply bind an event handler to each Button control's OnClick event to determine the particular Button that was clicked. To solve this, you use event bubbling to fire an event on the container control (in this case, the Repeater, DataList, or DataGrid), and let the container impart additional information to the event handler about the item that raised the event.

These events can be raised from a Button by specifying a CommandName property with the name of the event. When the Button is clicked, the command "bubbles" to the container control (such as Repeater), which fires its own event. The arguments for this event might contain additional information, such as a custom string or the index of the item that raised the event.

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.
 
The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
