First off I'm very new to ASP.NET. My data-binding problem is this: I have a user control that contains a DataList, withing the user control I have an array of objects that are binded to the data list. This works fine and the datalist displays exactly what I want. I have also set up an event that changes the background color of one of the controls on a click. So when the click event happens through a bubble event I change the controls backcolor and then try to call the DataList.DataBind(). This does not work when all the controls Page_Load happens my binded object from the Array is now null. All the examples I have found in code that seem to work have you recreating the data source before calling the DataBind function in the PostBackEvent asp.net step. I don't understand why this is or how I'm suppose to resolve my situation since my datasource in my user control can't easily be recreated. I hope I explained this well I have included a test program that sort of duplicates the issue I'm having. If you run this code you will not get the data list to display at all on a click event. But if you call the BindList function it will work correctly.
