Data binding won't update source.

I have a checkbox in a template field in a gridview.  Two way binding is set for the checkbox control.  But, checking the checkbox does not update the source table.

(Line 26 in the code is the actual bind)

What might I be missing?  Thanks.
<asp:GridView ID="GridViewBrowse" runat="server" AllowSorting="True" 
                        BackColor="White" BorderColor="White" BorderStyle="Ridge"
                        BorderWidth="2px" CellPadding="3" CellSpacing="1" CssClass="TableFont" DataSourceID="SqlDataSourceBrowse"
                        EmptyDataText="Records will be displayed here.  Click select on a record for detailed data"
                        GridLines="None" Height="1px" PageSize="6" TabIndex="3" Width="762px"

Or, if when CheckBox_CheckedChanged event is fired, if I could determine the row of the GridView the checkbox is in, that would be even better.  It should have some parent and location information, shouldn't it?

thanks

(Notes for the OP):

The original databinding problem is not so much an issue as getting the RowIndex when the checkbox is changed.

hmm....  I have tried adding onRowCommand="MyDataGrid_EditCommand" to the <asp:GridView object, hoping it would call the code behind "MyDataGrid_EditCommand" sub routine when the checkbox is checked but it does not call it.

It does not seem like I can pass the RowIndex on the CheckBox_CheckedChanged event.

Is there some event within the GridView that I can get to fire when a checkbox located in a template is checked?

I've tried -
OnRowCommand
OnRowEditing
OnRowUpdating

With no luck.

Thanks

I figured it out...  at least how the get the row index on check box changed.  That will solve my problem
It's simple.

    Protected Sub CheckBox2_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim gvRow As GridViewRow
        Dim chkbx As CheckBox
        Dim intRowIndex As Integer

        chkbx = sender
        gvRow = chkbx.Parent.Parent
        intRowIndex = gvRow.RowIndex
' perform work agains that row here
end sub
