Grid within a Grid ItemDataBound event problem

P: n/a
Im trying to create a grid within a grid programmatically. Ive been
successful in doing this but I need the embedded grid to fire its
ItemDataBound event so I can handle it. The event does not seem to fire for
some reason. The code is below.

Look towards the end of the CustomerDataGrid_OnItemDataBound(object sender,
DataGridItemEventArgs e) method. This is where I register the event and
place the programmatically created grid into the main grid. The registered
event does not cause the OrdersDataGrid_ItemDataBound to run.

Appreciate anyones help.

Thanks,
Girish

You should add the event handler before you execute the
OrdersDataGrid.DataBind() method.

I have 2 samples of a several-levels hierarchical datagrid working on my
website using both the datagrid server control and the HTML Table:

Good one Phillips!

You should add the event handler before you execute the
OrdersDataGrid.DataBind() method.

I have 2 samples of a several-levels hierarchical datagrid working on my
website using both the datagrid server control and the HTML Table:

Im trying to create a grid within a grid programmatically. Ive been
successful in doing this but I need the embedded grid to fire its
ItemDataBound event so I can handle it. The event does not seem to fire for some reason. The code is below.

Look towards the end of the CustomerDataGrid_OnItemDataBound(object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e) method. This is where I register the event and
place the programmatically created grid into the main grid. The registered event does not cause the OrdersDataGrid_ItemDataBound to run.

Appreciate anyones help.

Thanks,
