    Hello, I did exactly like in your video but i recive the error:

    The ListView ‘listView’ raised event Sorting which wasn’t handled.
    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: The ListView ‘listView’ raised event Sorting which wasn’t handled.

    If you have an explication I would apreciate it. Have a good day.

    Sorry, nothing comes to mind. But, let’s go through the obvious.
    1) You are using VS 2008
    2) You got the listView to display the content.
    3) You put the linkButton in the proper template section.

    If I had to guess, I’d say the last one is your problem. But, I’ve never seen this not work as described in the video, so I honestly can’t tell you what you might have done wrong without looking at your code.

    If you want, send me your code via the “Click Here to Ask a Question” link in the upper right hand corner and I’ll take a look.
