Slow datagrid on postback

Hello there,

I have a datagrid that has a select button (so the user can choose a
row) and also uses the datagrid sort.

If I have a smaller grid (say 150 rows) the response time of the sort
or select button (that just opens a popup with some information) is a
couple of seconds.

If I load in say 500 records into the datagrid (the load speed is
fine). As soon as I try and sort on a column, or select from the
grid, it takes about 20 seconds.

Does anyone know why this would be happening.

Any help would be appreciated,

Tom Olthoff

Here is a sample of the code:

<asp:datagrid id="DataGrid1" style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 8px;
POSITION: absolute; TOP: 80px" runat="server"

Font-Size="Smaller" PageSize="1000" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
OnSortCommand="SortResults"
OnPageIndexChanged="PageResults"
OnItemDataBound="DataGrid1_ItemDataBound"
OnSelectedIndexChanged="DataGrid1_SelectedIndexChanged">
<SelectedItemStyle BackColor="#8080FF"></SelectedItemStyle>
<HeaderStyle BackColor="Silver"></HeaderStyle>
<Columns>
<asp:ButtonColumn Visible="False" Text="Select"

</Columns>
<PagerStyle Visible="False" NextPageText="Next 5"
PrevPageText="Prev 5"></PagerStyle>
</asp:datagrid>

The real question is what mechanism are you usiung for sorting. That's what
you should focus on or perhaps alternate mechanisms.
