actually, i'm developing dynamic template using asp.net and c#.
in my usercontrol page i have a listview which is include dynamically created table. once the user edited any of the rows and press the save button before the PageLoad or PageInit i want to execute the ItemUpdating function to save the data to the database.
my listview code is as follow:

<asp:ListView ID="lv_Uc_Module" runat="server"
                    OnItemEditing="lv_Uc_Module_ItemEditing" 
                    OnItemDeleting="lv_Uc_Module_ItemDeleting"
                    OnItemCanceling="lv_Uc_Module_ItemCanceling" 
                    OnItemDataBound="lv_Uc_Module_ItemDataBound"
                    OnSorting="lv_Uc_Module_Sorting">

                        <LayoutTemplate>
                            <asp:Table runat="server" ID="table_Lv_Layout">
                                <asp:TableRow runat="server" ID="tr_Table_Layout">
                                    <asp:TableCell runat="server" ID="td_Table_Layout">
                                        <asp:Table runat="server" ID="itemPlaceholderContainer">
                                            <asp:TableRow runat="server" ID="tr_Table_IphContainer">
                                                <asp:TableHeaderCell runat="server">
                                                    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="th_Ph_Lv_header" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>
                                                </asp:TableHeaderCell>
                                            </asp:TableRow>
                                            <asp:TableRow runat="server">

                        </ItemTemplate>

and my ItemDataBound function which is include the dynamic table code is as follow:

protected void lv_Uc_Module_ItemDataBound(object sender, ListViewItemEventArgs e)

    if (tempDataBound == 0 && !"".Equals(hid_ChooseModule.Value) && hid_SaveClicked.Value != "1")

        lv_Uc_Module_DataBind("");

        Table table_Lv_ItemTemplate = (Table)e.Item.FindControl("Table_Lv_ItemTemplate");
        table_Lv_ItemTemplate.Controls.Clear();
        rowCounter = 0;
        tempDataBound++;
    }

    if (e.Item.ItemType == ListViewItemType.DataItem )

        tr_DataBound.Cells.Add(tc_DataBound);
        table_Lv_ItemTemplate = (Table)e.Item.FindControl("Table_Lv_ItemTemplate");
        table_Lv_ItemTemplate.Rows.Add(tr_DataBound);

    }
}

the problem is once the user click on the save button the ItemUpdating function never executed. i have used bellow method to call the function on save button click but does not work.

btn_Update.Command += new CommandEventHandler(lv_Uc_Module_ItemUpdating);
btn_Update.CommandName = e.Item.DataItemIndex.ToString();

could you pplease guide me what should i do to prevent from pageLoad and call the ItemUpdating function on save button click. appreciate your consideration.
