Need ASP.NET ListView to fire SelectedIndex events

Hello!

I have a ListView that is DataBound in the Code Behind (any language).  The first 'column' is a RadioButton.  I'm able to handle the CheckedChange so that the first column performs like a RadioButtonList, BUT, in that event changing the SelectedIndex of the ListView only works on the initial page load.

My ultimate goal is to have the SelectedIndex be correct when the RadioButton is checked/changed, but the only way I can get the ListView's OnSelectedIndexChanged event to fire is to add a LinkButton and set the CommandName.

I'm up against a deadline today and am turning here as a last resort.  I'll be 'closing' this question before the COB EST today - as I'll either be unemployed or finished.  If I finish, I'll surely post my solution.

Expert help is always appreciated!

Set the control to AutoPostBack = true?

So far mohan_sekar's solutions is working (in my prototype)!  I was headed down this path but wasn't sure if the ListView would suffice as the Sender object (but we're not using it - so it doesn't matter!).

Thank you and if it works in the real databound listview I'll post this as your solution!

No, no dice.  It's the same problem I had before:

The first time thru, the SelectedData, DataItems, etc. are all good.  But once I click that radio button and have it postback they are null.

I'm doing the databind in OnInit if NOT postback - which seems okay and renders okay - but something tells me I need to rebind??
protected void listViewSort_SelectedIndexChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Int32? selectedUid = ((Int32?)listViewSort.SelectedDataKey.Values[0]) ?? null;
    lblTest.Text = String.Format("ID: {0}", selectedUid);
}

Open in new window

Is it a custom control of any type?  It might be losing the state in viewstate.

when you say "they are null", do you mean the selectedItem is null?
Just to make sure I understand your question - you've a listview. The 1st column in your list view if a radio button. On click on radio button, you want to do something on the server side. Is that right? Or, there is more to it?

Yeah, if I had to do this I would just set the AutoPostBack = true property on the list view

There is no AutoPostBack property for a ListView.

I do have the RadioButton's AutoPostBack property set though.

When I click another control after selecting the radiobutton on the listview, the listview's SelectedDataKey is null.  I just put the value into viewstate and pull it where I need it.

Thanks again mohan_sekar!
