To bind a gridview you need to have 2 things

(A) Datasource : the one which holds records, could be dataset, dropdownlist, arrays etc. Assigned to controls (e.g. Grid view) like Gridview1.Datasource= your datasource
(B) DataBind : Binding database to controls which is Gridview1.DataBind

Now you wish to change the datasource on postback. So if that changes on first time page load you would get your (old) datasource and after then page loads you would get your (new) datasource. Is that what you wished? If no, then please explain or post your code or any link which justified your example. I'm asking such long questions, as this is quite rare of changing datasource and that too on postbacks

thanks
