Create a Seperate BindData method and see

void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e){
if(Page.IsPostBack != "true"){

void BindData(){
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
SQLDataSetCommand dsc;
dsc = new SQLDataSetCommand("SELECT * FROM myTable", "[connectionString]");
dsc.FillDataSet(ds, "myTable");
[Set the DataSource properties]

The problem here isn't so much that you need to rebind. After a postback, the datasource of the grid will be NULL. Therefore, e.Item.DataItem will also be NULL.

Instead of getting data from e.Item.DataItem you need to get the data from the Items cells that are in the datagrid. That's where the data grid maintains its state.

e.Item.Cells(n).Text (for a standard BoundColumn).
