I'm creating a RadGrid dynamically and inserting a RadGrid into it.

When I change the RadGrid page, it disappears. How to keep the RadPageView content through Postback?

Besides that, none of RadGrid events are fired when the page changes.

My code:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="PageViewProblem.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebApp.PageViewProblem" %>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadTabStrip runat="server" ID="radTabStrip1" MultiPageID="radMultiViewSearchResult"></telerik:RadTabStrip>
            <telerik:RadMultiPage runat="server" ID="radMultiView1" SelectedIndex="0" EnableViewState="true"></telerik:RadMultiPage>
            <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server"></telerik:RadScriptManager>

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using Telerik.Web.UI;

namespace WebApp
    public partial class PageViewProblem : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (!IsPostBack)

        private void LoadData()
            RadTab tab1 = new Telerik.Web.UI.RadTab("Tab1");
            RadPageView resultPageView1 = new RadPageView();
            resultPageView1.ID = "radPageView1";

            RadGrid grid1 = new RadGrid();
            grid1.ID = "RadGrid1";
            grid1.PageSize = 5;
            grid1.AllowPaging = true;
            grid1.AllowCustomPaging = true;
            grid1.PagerStyle.AlwaysVisible = true;
            grid1.VirtualItemCount = 50;
            grid1.NeedDataSource += (sender, args) =>
                grid1.DataSource = SimulateDataSource(grid1);
            grid1.PageIndexChanged += (sender , args) =>
                Debug.WriteLine("Please, load page number: {grid1.currentPage}");

        private object SimulateDataSource(RadGrid grid)
            List<ItemData> result = new List<ItemData>();
            for (int i = grid.CurrentPageIndex + 1; i <= grid.CurrentPageIndex + 5; i++)
                result.Add(new ItemData(i, $"Item Description {i}"));
            return result;
        private class ItemData
            public int Value { get; set; }
            public string Description { get; set; }
            public ItemData(int value, string description)
                this.Value = value;
                this.Description = description;

Hello Rafael,

Due to the nature of the ASP.NET Framework, it is important to use the correct events when creating controls dynamically. Check out the Page Life Cycle In ASP.NET article to learn why the events are important.

This applies for Telerik and non-Telerik ASP.NET WebForms controls. 

Try to move the code from the Page_Load to Page_Init (without the "if(!IsPostBack)" condition) and see if that will fix the issue.
