Remarks

The Command event is raised when the LinkButton control is clicked. This event is commonly used when a command name, such as Sort, is associated with the LinkButton control. This allows you to create multiple LinkButton controls on a Web page and programmatically determine which LinkButton control is clicked.

Note

The Command event is raised through the control hierarchy in the form of the BubbleEvent.
