Binding dynamic datalist in C#

I am trying to create a dynamic Data List bind with database. I can easily create this but I am not able to make the item Command of this Data List. Please help me. Here is my code below

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)

    public void categorybinding()
        int totalcate = (from x in ebooks.books_category select x).Count();

        var ra = (from x in ebooks.books_category select x);

        DataList dl = new DataList();
        dl.ItemTemplate = new DatalistLabelColumnBind();
        dl.DataSource = ra;

        dl.ItemCommand += new DataListCommandEventHandler(this.ItemCommandHandler);


    public void ItemCommandHandler(object sender, DataListCommandEventArgs e)

//Create a new class implementing ITemplate
public class DatalistLabelColumnBind : ITemplate
    public DatalistLabelColumnBind()
        //Add constructor 

    public void InstantiateIn(Control container)
        LinkButton label1 = new LinkButton();
        label1.DataBinding += new EventHandler(this.BindLabelColumn);
    public void BindLabelColumn(object sender, EventArgs e)

        LinkButton lbl = (LinkButton)sender;
        DataListItem  container = (DataListItem)lbl.NamingContainer ;
        String strVals = Convert.ToString(DataBinder.Eval(((DataListItem)container).DataItem, "books_category1"));
        lbl.CommandArgument = Convert.ToString(DataBinder.Eval(((DataListItem)container).DataItem, "id_books"));
        lbl.Text = strVals;

My Problem :

  1. My Data List easily added on the page but when I click on the Link Button which is added in the Data List is does not Redirect to the NewPage.aspx

Help me out..


I think your Response.Redirect is not resolving to the intended page.



Write categorybinding() function after the if condition in Page_Load. And ItemCommandHandler will definitely work.
