In general when an action is called programmatically an event is not fired. This is because the developer is aware that the action will be called, so no event is fired. The Kendo UI ActionSheet is a widget that can only be opened programmatically and this is why no event is fired.
In your case you can execute your code inside the method that you use to open the ActionSheet as it will have the same effect as using an event.
