Try it out - p.613 - ListView_DataBound and Postback
I was trying to get a better understanding as to when the ListView_DataBound event is called on postback. I added a test button to the default.aspx page to compare the two postbacks.
The first postback happens via the dropdown control when user selects an album. I noticed that ListView_DataBound event is called on postback.
However, when creating a postback (by clicking the test button), I noticed that the ListView_DataBound is not called. I was confused as to why this happens?
