Postback causes Javascipted button to disappear

Hello, I have a webuser control on a page that resides in an update panel. In this control I have two calendar controls that have their autopostback = true, so I can capture the selected date and perform some functions.

My control searches a database for blog posts for the timespan of the two calendar controls. Once the results are displayed in my gridview control, I have a facebook share button so users can share the blog post on their facebook wall.

This all works perfectly if the dates are manually set and the calendar controls are not used. If the calendar controls are used the facebook share button disappears.

Attached is my control. How can I over come this issue???

Sorry for the long code example. The facebook link and javascript is near the bottom.

this looks like you are resetting something on the Page_OnLoad without considering the isPostback as true

mmm

This is my page load:

   Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not IsPostBack Then
            GetToday()
            lbLogin.Visible = False
            GetPostItFromSession()
            GetPostItForThreeDays()
        End If

The facebook icon disappears for any partial postback. For example, if I add a post and then GetPostItForThreeDays()
it dissapears. GetPostItForThreeDays() does repopulate the gridview that contains the facebook icon(the java button).

Is there a way to reset the javascripted button when I execute a partial postback?



    End Sub
