Catching click event inside an UpdatePanel of a User Control

I was experimenting with dynamically loaded user controls.  

For some reason, when I load (from PickListUser) my PickList control, the control is displayed reasonably - with Region.xml as given, the repeater shows two lines with a name and button on each.

However, when I click the button, ONLY the load code on my host page (PickListUser) is called (with IsPostBack==true), neither the load event nor the click event on the PickList code behind are triggered.
Picklist.ascx:
---------------------------------
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Picklist.ascx.cs" Inherits="Picklist" %>
<input type="hidden" runat="server" ID="path" />
<input type="hidden"  runat="server" ID="parent" />
<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" >
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:UpdatePanel runat="server" ID="mypanel" UpdateMode="Conditional">
<ContentTemplate>
<asp:Label runat="server" ID="name" Text='<%# Eval("Name") %>' />
<asp:Button runat="server" ID="select" Text="select"  /><br />
<asp:Label runat="server" ID="display" />
</ContentTemplate>
</asp:UpdatePanel>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>
 
 
Picklist.ascx.cs:
---------------------------------
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Xml;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
 
public partial class Picklist : System.Web.UI.UserControl
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            string[] elements = path.Value.Split(',');
            XmlDataSource source = new XmlDataSource();
            source.DataFile = "App_Data/" + elements[0] + ".xml";
            Repeater1.DataSource = source;
            Repeater1.DataBind();
        }
        foreach (RepeaterItem x in Repeater1.Items)
        {
            (x.Controls[1].Controls[0].Controls[3] as Button).Click += Command;
        }
    }
 
 
    protected void Command(object source, EventArgs e)
    {
        display.Text = "foo";
    }
}
 
PickListUser.aspx

            path.Value = "region,country,call";
            FindControl("form1").Controls.Add(main);
            mgr.RegisterAsyncPostBackControl(main);
        }
    }

If you are going to dynamically load the control, then it needs to be loaded all the time.  You must reload the control even if the page posts back, or none of the events will be wired up.

Thanks - reloading the whole kibosh did it for me ...  to my surprise, without losing state in the items I was reloading!
