ObjectDataSource Delete Command Parameters

I have a gridview thats datasource is an objectdatasource which has the following methods.

Select : return a DataSet //used to popluate from a sqlTable
              public static DataSet SelectDataset()
             {
                   //code to select DataSet
              }
Delete : Method with 1 parameter used to Identify the id
               public static void DeleteCommand(String id)
              {
                   //code to delete
               }

When the user clicks the Delete button the OnRowDeleting Event runs ...
Currently this errors out because the id value is never set before the DeleteCommand runs.

How do I  ....set the String id parameter.... to the value from the .....GridViewDeleteEventArgs RowIndex value.....?

What I am looking for is a way ( if possible ) to set the parameters that are being used in the DeleteMethod that I created. Or if someone could explain to me how the GridView uses the ObjectDataSource to configure the parameters from the Method.

when you are deleting a record from a GV, there has to be a unique key for delete. Otherewise, how could a record being deleted instead of multiple record. So it's simple enough from GV to set a Datakey column.
