Datagrid footer - basic question

I have seen a few articles on adding a "add new record" sort of feature in the footer of a datagrid.  I would like to know if it is possible to do the following:

Have an EditCommandColumn and a DeleteCommandColumn that has a footer template so that I can add the "add" button in the footer of the EditCommandColumn and a "Cancel" button in the footer of the DeleteCommandColumn.

I attempted to do this by turning the Edit/DeleteCommandColumns into Template columns and then the appropriate commandevents stopped working and became intercepted by the itemcommand event.  Here is what I did for the edit command column:

                                        <asp:TemplateColumn>
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                          <asp:LinkButton runat="server" Text="Edit" CommandName="Edit" CausesValidation="false"></asp:LinkButton>
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                    <FooterTemplate>
                                          <asp:linkbutton ID="lnkAdd" Runat="server" Text="Add" CommandName="Add"></asp:linkbutton>
                                    </FooterTemplate>
                                    <EditItemTemplate>
                                          <asp:LinkButton runat="server" Text="Update" CommandName="Update"></asp:LinkButton>&nbsp;
                                          <asp:LinkButton runat="server" Text="Cancel" CommandName="Cancel" CausesValidation="false"></asp:LinkButton>
                                    </EditItemTemplate>
                              </asp:TemplateColumn>

Thanks for your help!  I've been working on this for days and it's driving me nuts!!

Are you sure you just aren't misunderstanding how DataGrid events are fired? The ItemCommand event of the datagrid gets fired for every event, even when you click edit/update/cancel/delete.  Then the datagrid fires events for Update/Cancel/Delete Commands.  If you don't want anything to happen in the ItemCommand event, you have to write checks to do this.  Usually I find this works in the ItemCommand events.

If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
  'do something other than update/edit/delete/cancel
End IF
