ASP.NET Gridview control does not fire rowcommand event inside an ajax toolkit's update panel

Hi, I've been browsing google and ex from last several hours but could not find a resolution of my problem. The problem is that when i place a gridview control inside an ajax toolkit update panel, the rowcommand event is not fired. As it seems the callback event is being raised but the code inside the grid view rowcommand event handler is never reached. I've attached my code with this post, in which i've placed a gridview and a form with a text box inside an undate panel. I need to set textbox value fetching from database based upon the imagebutton click which is having command name and command argument attributes.

Hi,
Please verify following CheckList:

1) You have not posted your page load event handler. Please check it that when you are binding the grid for the first time, you are doint it inside the 'Not' postback , i.e. if page is not postback -> bind the grid.  Check it out.

2) Is your row command event fired if you remove ajax and allow full page postback?

I guess we'll be able to find the solution once these checks are made.

err I forgot to mention the 3rd step,

3) Ensure there are no exceptions while grid is bound, to check it , put a try catch around inside when you call grid's .databind() event. There should ideally no exceptions when grid is bound, else we'll have problems with other events through the page lifecycle.
