Have a datagrid question with edit update delete buttons

I'm trying to get a grid running that gives the user the ability to edit, delete and save changes to the row, basic if you ask me.
Well I noticed that I have to click twice on the edit button for it to go to editcommand event. The item command event fires on a single click but doesnt  call the edit command on the first click.  Why???
Here is the html and the code behind.  I would like to use templates cause I feel I have more control over the look and feel of the control. But at this point I don't care just want to get it running.


    Private Sub dgParentCat_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs) Handles dgParentCat.ItemCommand
        dgParentCat.EditItemIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex
    End Sub
End Class

Private Sub dgParentCat_EditCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs) Handles dgParentCat.EditCommand
        dgParentCat.EditItemIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex
  End Sub




<asp:datagrid id="dgParentCat" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AllowSorting="True"
                        PageSize="5" Width="446px" CssClass="TextBox1">
                        <Columns>
                              <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Parent Category">
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                          <asp:Label id=Label1 runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.ParentCategory") %>'>
                                          </asp:Label>
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                    <EditItemTemplate>
                                          <asp:TextBox id=TextBox1 runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.ParentCategory") %>'>
                                          </asp:TextBox>
                                    </EditItemTemplate>
                              </asp:TemplateColumn>
                              <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Edit">
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                          <asp:Button id="dgedit" runat="server" CssClass="Button1" CommandArgument="EditParentBT" CommandName="EditButton"
                                                Text="Edit"></asp:Button>
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                    <EditItemTemplate>
                                          <asp:Button id="btnSave" runat="server" CssClass="Button1" CommandArgument="SaveParentBT" CommandName="SaveButton"
                                                Text="Save"></asp:Button>
                                    </EditItemTemplate>
                              </asp:TemplateColumn>
                              <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Delete"></asp:TemplateColumn>
                              <asp:EditCommandColumn ButtonType="PushButton" UpdateText="Update" CancelText="Cancel" EditText="Edit"></asp:EditCommandColumn>
                        </Columns>
                  </asp:datagrid>

It kinda sounds like you're binding the grid someplace when you shouldn't be.

What does your Page_Load event look like and also the code where you actually bind the datagrid?

I bind at load, should I bind it some where else?
  If Page.IsPostBack Then

        Else

            Dim ds As DataSet = SitePop.GetPictureMenuTB()
            With Me.dgParentCat
                .DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
                .DataKeyField = "id"
                .DataBind()
        End With
        End If

I think you'll want to rebind the datagrid in each of those subs.  Probably you should create a sub for binding the grid, then just call it in the page load and the ItemCommand, EditCommand, etc subs.

Private Sub dgParentCat_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventArgs) Handles dgParentCat.ItemCommand
        dgParentCat.EditItemIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex
        BindDataGrid()
End Sub
