refresh gridview on the same page after modifying data

I have a gridview that has allowPaging and AllowSorting set to true. It is bound to a sqldatasource with the selectCommand firing a sql query.
The sqldatasource has EnableCaching = true, and caching duration = "60". The idea is to run the paging, sorting, etc from the cache.

A separate dataUpdate event updates the data that is being loaded in the grid view, but I am not able to see the change in the gridview data till 30 seconds (caching duration) .

What is the best way to force refresh the gridview data by the dataUpdate event?

I came across this artice that tells to use CacheKeyDependency,  but when I implemented it, the gridview gets refreshed at every dataUpdate event, but also the paging and sorting fires the sqldatasource Selectcommand sql query. I want this query to be fired only on dataUpdate.

in your code behind for dataUpdate event, re-bind the grid, but do check for Page.IsPostBack in your page load.

Also for grid add up AutoPostBack = "tru" in your aspx page.

It should do the job :)

I have re-bind in the dataUpdate and Autopostback for the grid is set to true.
It does the grid update, but also fires the query on paging sorting events, which I don't want. That is why i enabled caching to true, so that these events do not fire the query.

However, when I check for Page.IsPostBack in the dataUpdate event before rebinding the grid, the grid does not get refreshed.

Thanks.

in Page_Load()
{
 if(!Page.IsPostBack)
{
// bind the grid
}
else // if page is posting back the data
{
   //check if DataUpdate == true
    {
       //re-bind grid
     }
}


Cheers!

I was doing the the cacheKeyDependency removal and creation in the wrong way.
It worked by changing it as follows:
Cache.Remove(SQLDataSource1.CacheKeyDependency);
Cache[SQLDataSource1.CacheKeyDependency] = new object();
