How do I create a New LinkButtonTester using NUnitAsp for a LinkButton that is nested inside a DataGrid which is also inside an update panel which is also inside a ContentPlaceHolder?  

I cannot find the correct name to use so that NUnitAsp can find it on my page.

Hi misdevelopers, well done
can this assist you as a starting point as I am no epert in this area really.
This guide contains a brief description of NUnitAsp and how to use it. It assumes that you're familiar with NUnit, ASP.NET, and unit testing

Thanks!  Prior to posting my question here I had reviewed the sites you've mentioned.

In the examples, they give a name in the parameter for the name of the LinkButton, as follows:

LinkButtonTester updateLink = new LinkButtonTester("cmdUpdateReasonCode", editRow);

I create my asp datagrid control with an asp:ButtonColumn using the following code:

<asp:ButtonColumn CommandName="SelectClass" Text="Select Class"></asp:ButtonColumn>

There is no ID for this linkbutton that I can find to reference in the above parameter.  (SelectClass or Select Class doesn't work, I tried).

Well, that last link you found helped me solve the problem.  The problem was the way I was creating the linkbutton in the ASP.Net datagrid.

Instead of:
     <asp:ButtonColumn CommandName="SelectClass" Text="Select Class"></asp:ButtonColumn>

You need to use:
                <asp:LinkButton ID="ViewClasses" Text="View Classes" runat="server" CausesValidation="false" CommandName="ViewClasses"></asp:LinkButton>

This gives the required Id to work with.
