Being stupid - ItemCommand trigger not firing

When clicking on my commands in my datagrid, the ItemCommand is not getting fired

Item command in c#:
private void dgDocList_ItemCommand(object source, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs e)
{
      //Get the document id of the selected document and store in viewstate.
      _docId = int.Parse(e.Item.Cells[0].Text);
      ViewState["docId"] = _docId;

      switch(e.CommandName)
      {                        
      case "Copy":
      break;
      case "Delete":
      DeleteDocument();
      break;
      case "Edit":
      EditDocument();
      break;      
      case "More":
      break;      
      default:
      // Do nothing.
      break;
      }      
}

First part of ASP code:
<asp:DataGrid id="dgDocList" runat="server" Width="747px" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
<AlternatingItemStyle CssClass="altItemStyle"></AlternatingItemStyle>
<ItemStyle CssClass="itemStyle"></ItemStyle>
<HeaderStyle CssClass="headerStyle"></HeaderStyle>
<Columns>
<asp:BoundColumn Visible="False" DataField="Document_ID">
<ItemStyle Width="1px"></ItemStyle>
</asp:BoundColumn>
<asp:ButtonColumn Text="Edit" CommandName="Edit" ItemStyle-Width="30px"></asp:ButtonColumn>
                        
Any ideas?  I've set a break point on the ItemCommand function and it's never reached.

This has to be something obvious that I'm missing, I'm sure, as I have this functionality working in other projects, and to my eye they don't look any different.

TIA
Ben

Most probably your ItemCommand Signature from the  IntializeComponent() is missing..this has happended to me a number of time using the VS.IDE...

just add the signature back in the IntializeComponent() as

this.dgDocList.ItemCommand += new System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventHandler(this.dgDocList_ItemCommand);

I'm assuming that dgDocList is the id of the Datagrid that you are using...
