apparently onitemcommand does not fire if you perform a databind on your datagrid after a page postback. worse even, i get an "id out of range" error if put the onitemcommand tag in my datagrid and repost the page. i need databinding on the postback because of paging/sorting reasons.<BR>now i tried setting enableviewstate=true, initializing the datagrid in the page_init instead of the page_load, trying alternatives for onitemcommand such as editcolumns, OnSelectedIndexChanged, etc. nothing works and the MSDN site calmly informs me that onitemcommand will simply not work in this case. if anybody has any experience with this, please post your tips.
