    Hi All,


    I Have a nested gridview with HierarchyLoadMode="Server Binding"  (think an Purchase Order / Lines).

    Within the Lines grid view I have a link button in a template column:

        <telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="PO_Num" HeaderText="PO #" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" SortExpression="PO_Num">
                                            <asp:LinkButton runat="server" ID="lbPO" CommandArgument='<%#Eval("PO_Num").ToString() %>' OnClick="lbPO_Click" Text='<%#Eval("PO_Num").ToString()%>' ToolTip="View invoices for this PO." />


    When this button is clicked it pulls data and binds it to a completely separate grid.  

     My issue is with the loading panel.  When the link button first becomes visible, if I click on the link button the loading panel will not show, even though I'm dynamically adding the control to the rad ajax manager (I've tried on both the pre_render and ItemDataBound events).  The button still works as though it's ajaxed, but it's not being fired though the OnRequestStart.  If another control that is also ajaxed gets fired (say a dropdownlist on the page), the link button will then work as expected . . . going through the OnRequestStart and showing the loading panel.


     Looking for suggestions / work arounds.

     My Parent Grid databinding to the child grid:

    protected void rgPurchaseOrder_ItemCommand(object sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
        if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.ExpandCollapseCommandName)
            GridDataItem parentItem = e.Item as GridDataItem;
            RadGrid rgLines = parentItem.ChildItem.FindControl("rgLines") as RadGrid;
            if (!e.Item.Expanded)
                rgLines.Visible = true;
                if (parentItem.ItemType == GridItemType.AlternatingItem)
                    parentItem.ChildItem.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(231, 255, 229);
                rgLines.Visible = false;


     My Lines PreRender . . . 

    protected void rgLines_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
           foreach (GridNestedViewItem item in rgPurchaseOrder.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.NestedView))
               GridDataItem grandParentItem = (GridDataItem)item.ParentItem;
               RadGrid rgLines = grandParentItem.ChildItem.FindControl("rgLines") as RadGrid;
               if (rgLines!= null)
                   foreach (GridDataItem childItem in rgLines.MasterTableView.Items)
                          LinkButton btn = (LinkButton)childItem["PO"].FindControl("lbPO");
        //wires up to an asp:panel . . . doesn't matter if I point at the rad grid directly or not, loading panel won't show.
        RadAjaxManager.GetCurrent(this.Page).AjaxSettings.AddAjaxSetting(btn, pnlInvoices, RadAjaxLoadingPanel2);


    aspx (just showing generic layout).


     <radgrid ID = "rgPurchaseOrder">

    <master table view>



    <radgrid ID="rgLines" >


    </master table view>




    <asp:panel id="pnlInvoices">

    <radGrid id="rgInvoices">
