Search feature not working - ASP.net (aspx) 4.0

Admittedly I do not know what else to do at this point. I have spent the last week trying to figure out how to do paging with a datalist contol. I have to use a datalist because I need the formatting freedom. I thought I could get the pages to work but Something is missing.

1. The pages load ok.
2. I don't receive any compile errors.
3. The next, previous, last buttons are clickable

The BIG PROBLEM IS my search page does not bring back any results. If it is bringing back results they are not displaying on the page. My assumption is no results are being returned. I think it would be too much code to try and place here so I am attaching the aspx file in text format and the aspx.vb file also in text format. I can't tell you where I'm going wrong with this so someone will have to look through the code to determine the problem. I've tried everything I know to do at this point. I thought about searching for some more sample code of datalist paging but I figured since the pages are not failing then maybe I am very close to making this work. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! search.txt

I wanted to add that I do get search results in the non-paging version og the pages where I'm just using an SQLdatasource binding to the datalist.

Because you're doing a response.Redirect, a new request will be made, and I can't see where you're passign or storing the string to search, so my guess is that your actual query is getting lost in the redirect.

Instead of passing the page number in the query string, store it in the viewstate of the page. and just Databind after upping the current page number.

I tossed that code based. I couldn't really understand what the author ws doing. When I tested his page on a site it didn't work either. However, this code does work that I found.

Private Sub DataBind()
Dim objConn As New SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("ConnectionString"))
Dim objDA As New SqlDataAdapter("exec sp_das_sales_sel", objConn)

objDA.Fill(objDS)
intRecordCount.Text = CStr(objDS.Tables(0).Rows.Count)
objDS = Nothing
objDS = New DataSet()

objDA.Fill (objDS, Cint(intCurrIndex.Text), CInt(intPageSize.Text), "Sales")

I do believe that ToA0M's solution would hae worked. However, I found some datalist paging code that works and is easy to implement.
