    Just realized that this may have been more appropriate for the Developing with Sitefinity forum so please move if that forum is more appropriate. 

    I have created a custom control using Sitefinity Thunder. We are using custom controls rather than user controls because we are getting a published Sitefinity website.

    It has created the .ascx, .cs and designer files as expected.  I have added an ASP Button server control to the .ascx and referenced it in the .cs in the same manner as the Message Label example (except its a button).

    In InitializeControls I add the click event handler (see attached).

    The problem that I am having is that the click event does not fire.  I have looked at the examples on the Sitefinity website but they seem to successfully avoid this topic. 

    Any comments appreciated?

    Thanks Peter

      protected override void InitializeControls(GenericContainer container)
    Label messageLabel = this.MessageLabel;
    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.Message))
    messageLabel.Text = "Hello, World!";
    messageLabel.Text = this.Message;
    this.nextBtn = NextButton;

    this.nextBtn.Click += new EventHandler(nextBtn_Click);

    void nextBtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    throw new NotImplementedException();

    Hi Peter,

    Can you try by enabling the ViewState of the page where the control is located? (going to the page's Actions->Title & Properties -> Advanced Options -> Enable ViewState)

    Best Regards,
