Datagrid events dont fire

I have created a datagrid dynamically,the grid displays perfect...except that events dont fire. First time when the page loads ItemCreated and ItemDataBound events dont fire, When I click on any sort expession ,now I could see(using brakepoints) the events the firing..but here also after the code is executed neither sorting in the header column is performed nor totals are displyed in the footer. I tried almost everything placing the event handlers,CreateGrid method in IntializeComponent() and everything I could find on net.Can anybody pls help??

Creating the datagrid at runtime require some additional steps. The article that I have posted has some info. Please also take a loo at the following as it describes what you need to do in order to enable events for controls that are added at runtime:

Can I ask what might be reason for dynamically creating a datagrid? if the grid needs to be shown conditionally, you can always use the "visible" property of the grid ..

dynamic controls are not so easy to work with .. also note that dynamic controls are NOT automatically created for every postback and so you will have to keep a track whether the datagrid was created in the previous postback and create it again in page "LOAD" or "INIT" event ..

Hi Rejojohny
I created the grid at design time ,every thing works fine but later I had to change it to dynamic bec I have to show multiple grids based upon the currencies in the database. I cannot hardcode the no. of grids as tommorow the no. of currencies(USD,EUR) may increase for the client...I hope u get my point...

I think I understand your design issue .. can I suggest couple of other options
group all the columns by "currency" and use heirarchical grid .. grid within a grid
user a repeater control and add a grid within it which repeats for every currency ..

your problem might be that the dynamic grid is not been created in page load and so the events are not getting fired ..

Forced accept.
