    I'm trying to delete a record from the RadGrid.
    So i'm handling the ondeletecommand like this:

    protected void AppointmentsGrid_DeleteCommand( object source, GridCommandEventArgs e )  
          DALDataContext dc = new DALDataContext();  
          int appointmentID = (int)e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["AppointmentID"];  

    The code above works fine, but this is not an easy way to get the appointmentID.
    Unfortunately i can't the following code to work:

    DALDataContext dc = new DALDataContext();  
    vw_Appointment appointment = (vw_Appointment)e.Item.DataItem;  

    Because the dataitem seems to be null all the time??
    Is there an explanation for this?

    DataItem is available only during data binding exactly in the same way as in standard MS GridView and DataGrid.
