Gridview GridViewRow is empty

Hi Experts

I have a Gridview with a template Col with a check box, what I want to to (and Am doing sucsesssfully with a test page and I GV) is detect which rows have a tick on post back.

My page has 3 GV's each with a unique ID, when I tick any of the boxes and hit a go btn the GridViewRow is empty. I have a  test page with 1 GV and it works OK, so the problem appears to be around the multi GV's I can post my code if required, but it does work.

Has anyone seen this behaviour before and found a solution, or is it me?

on go btn Click bind the data to all the grid views again

I think I tried that, and it cleared the selection, but just to make sure I'll try again.

Re bound the data and whilst GridViewRows now have data, the selected rows have been cleared.

What I dont understand is the code works fine with 1 GV but not multiple.

The code pages are quite large, but this is my template section and code behind for  the working one, which is identical to the faulty one. I think I'm loosing data on postback some where but cant find it. If all else fails I can capture the clicks on the client and persist those.

                                <asp:CheckBox ID="selectQuestion"  runat="server" />

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        For Each row As GridViewRow In gvAvailableQuestions.Rows

            Dim cb As CheckBox = row.FindControl("selectQuestion")
            If cb IsNot Nothing AndAlso cb.Checked Then
                Dim QuestionID As Integer = _

                lbldebug.Text &= String.Format("You Selected  {0}<br />", QuestionID)

            End If

    End Sub
