I have an edit button set up as a template field within a gridview and i want to edit that row if it is clicked but it is not firing the rowcomand event in the gridview.

aspx file:

<asp:TemplateField>
              <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:Button ID="edit" runat="server"
                        CommandName="EditMilestones"
                        CommandArgument="<%# CType(Container,GridViewRow).RowIndex %>"
                        Text="Edit" />
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>

code behind file

Protected Sub GrdVisualObjectives_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, _
          ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs)
        If (e.CommandName = "EditMilestones") Then
            ' Retrieve the row index stored in the CommandArgument property.
            Dim index As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument)

            ' Retrieve the row that contains the button
            ' from the Rows collection.
            Dim row As GridViewRow = GrdVisualObjectives.Rows(index)

            ' Add code here to add the item to the shopping cart.

        End If
    End Sub
