ItemCommand event doesn't fire 1st time in DataGrid

I was facing a strange problem while working with DataGrid (older control in I had a asp:ButtonColumn in the DataGrid with command name as "Modify". In OnItemCommand event I was writing some code that was executing only when I was clicking the Modify button two times. In 1st click even the OnItemCommand event was not firing.


To my surprise the solution was pretty simple. For some reason, the asp:ButtonColumn doesn't work in this way so instead of asp:ButtonColumn I added asp:TemplateColumn and under ItemTemplate I kept asp:LinkButton with command name as "Modify". Now it works. Clicking on the Modify button (link) in first attempt it self the OnItemCommand event fires.

Hope this will help someone.
