Default Click event not firing for Dynamic button control when it has validation control

I am creating few dynamic textboxes and a Button control. I have click event handler for the button control too. After validations, i want that event handler to fire. But its not firing. Its working for the Button control when it is created in Design time.

//i know i can do this all in design view , but i want this to be done Dynamically.

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
TextBox tb = new TextBox();
tb.ID = "tx" + i.ToString();
tb.Text = "";
Form.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br>"));
RequiredFieldValidator cv = new RequiredFieldValidator();
cv.ID = "cv" + i.ToString();
cv.Text = "Field is required";
cv.ControlToValidate = tb.ID;
cv.ForeColor = Color.Red;
Form.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br>"));
Button btn = new Button();
btn.ID = "btn";
btn.Text = "submit";
btn.CausesValidation = true;
btn.Click += new EventHandler(btn_Click);//not firing
Form.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br>"));


protected void btn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
// trylab is label control created in design view
trylab.Text = "Event handler working";

-please let me know where i went wrong.
-Thanks for your time
