Linkbutton Inside Gridview Not Firing Server Side Code

Please see me code below.

I've debugged and set a breakpoint on the  gvProds_RowCommand subroutine and it's not hitting it.

Any ideas?
<asp:GridView ID="gvProds" runat="server" BackColor="#EEEEEE" GridLines="horizontal" AllowSorting="false" CssClass="TextLabel" Width="780px"
AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataKeyNames="key" EnableViewState="false" >
<SelectedRowStyle BackColor="LightYellow" Font-Bold="true" />
<HeaderStyle BackColor="LightSlateGray" ForeColor="White" />
<AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#DDDDDD" Font-Bold="false" />
<RowStyle Font-Bold="false" />                                
<Columns>                                                                        
<asp:TemplateField>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkDetails" runat="server" Text="Details." CommandArgument='<%# eval("key") %>' CommandName="select" CausesValidation="false">								  </asp:LinkButton>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
</Columns>                                                        
</asp:GridView>
 
                       
 
 
 
    Protected Sub gvProds_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles gvProds.RowCommand
 
        If e.CommandName = "select" Then
            Me.hdnSelectedItem.Value = CType(sender, GridView).DataKeys(e.CommandArgument).Value
            SetMenuOptions(1)
        End If
 
    End Sub

you could try wiring the even in the tag:
<asp:GridView onrowcommand="gvProds_RowCommand"...

Are you binding the grid without a if(!IsPostBack) check?  If so try that or bind the grid in prerender instead.

ViewState turned off somewhere?
