Pleas note that it is not a supported scenario to add invisible controls and UserControls directly in the RadAjaxManager settings. You should firstly wrap the UserControl into always visible asp Panel and add this Panel to the RadAjaxManager setting instead.
Also please handle the needed server event fired from the UserControl and call Rebind() for the RadGrid there.
I hope this helps.
