With a little bit of research, a lot bit of patience, and some help from the internet community, I was able to solve all my issues, and pretty elegantly at that.

I suppose my eyes got big when I saw all the new properties and methods, and wanted to try them all out. Most articles I found were for hardcoded datasources (especially on MSDN, ugh) and didn’t really help me much, so this post will be referring to Grid Views with dynamically bound datasources. Hope this saves someone a full day of research (and possibly some hair)! To enhance this process, be sure to include your Grid View in an AJAX Update Panel.
