I have a datagrid and a linkbutton. When I click the linkbutton I perform a Datagrid.Items.Count to verify that my code can read the items in the datagrid; however, I always get 0. The datagrid is binding because I can see the results. If I attempt to issue a 'Response.Write(datagrid.datasource.ToString( ))' I get a null reference error. I do not bind everytime the page is posted back and have verified that. Is there any reason the rows would be missing from the datagrid or why the datasource is missing? The datagrid object does exist, as I can get a .Column count just fine. I can email my code to whomever can help. Thank you in advance. Chris
