ASP.NET GridView RowUpdating command doesn't fire

Hello everyone.

I have a gridview with asp:commandfield for edit/update/cancel and delete commands. When I'm trying to update a row the RowUpdating event doesn't fire. The other 3 commands are working fine.
When I'm over the update link I see the following message on IE status bar: javascript:WebFor_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions("ctl00$body$gvWeighs$ctl06$ctl00","",true,"","",false,true))
In my web application I have the same markup code for the gridview in other pages and the RowUpdating event works fine . The only difference in this one is that in one of my edititemtemplate i have a dropdownlist.

I'm adding the markup code for that.

I'm databinding the data to the gridview manually with a dataset.

Can anyone help me??
Thanks in advnace.

<Columns>
<asp:CommandField CancelText="Cancel" EditText="Edit" ShowEditButton="True" UpdateText="Save"/>
<asp:CommandField ButtonType="Image" DeleteImageUrl="~/Images/delete.jpg" ShowCancelButton="False" ShowDeleteButton="True" />

Kindly use the below given markup for your gridview.

You were missing the closing tag of asp:TemplateField and also the closing '>' for the SqlDataSource.

Hope it helps you solve your problem.
<asp:GridView ID="gvWeighs" runat="server" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" BorderColor="CornflowerBlue" BorderStyle="Solid" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8.5pt" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
<Columns>
<asp:CommandField CancelText="Cancel" EditText="Edit" ShowEditButton="True" UpdateText="Save"/>
<asp:CommandField ButtonType="Image" DeleteImageUrl="#" ShowCancelButton="False" ShowDeleteButton="True" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Car">
<EditItemTemplate>
<asp:DropDownList ID="Car" runat="server" DataSourceID="Cars" DataTextField="CarCode" DataValueField="CarID" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("CarID") %>'></asp:DropDownList>
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="Cars" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:skip %>"
SelectCommand="SELECT [CarID], [CarCode] FROM [Cars]"></asp:SqlDataSource>
</EditItemTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Label ID="Car" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("CarCode") %>'></asp:Label>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
</Columns>
</asp:GridView>

I have them in my markup. I probably deleted them when I copied the markup by mistake.
Thanks though

Here it is
Public Function GetWeighs(ByRef ds As DataSet, ByRef errorMessage As String) As Boolean
        Dim control As Boolean = False
        Dim da As SqlDataAdapter
        Dim sql As String = ""
        Try
            DatabaseConnection.OpenConnection()
            sql = "SELECT Weighs.CarID FROM Weighs INNER JOIN Cars ON Cars.CarID = Weighs.CarID ORDER BY Weighs.WeighDate"
            da = New SqlDataAdapter(sql, DatabaseConnection.connection)
            da.Fill(ds, "Weighs")
            control = True
        Catch ex As Exception
            control = False
            errorMessage = ex.Message
        Finally
            DatabaseConnection.CloseConnection()
        End Try
        Return control
End Function

You have not  given the code for the GridView1.DataSource and DataBind() functions. I am asking that part where you are fetching records from DB and binding the gridview and then handling the events of the gridview.

I solved it on my own.
I had to disable my control validators on a popup panel before editing.
