Some things are too much like magic commandName="select"
I had to use commandName="select" as a magic keyword in a detailsView to get the updated info from a gridView. This was a painful lesson that took me several hours to figure out. It wasn't documented anywhere that I could find and I was only able to find it in a code example. These types of things are what has frustrated me with asp.net so far. Every framework has a certain amount of tricks that are used, but they seem to be much greater in number within asp.net than anything else I've used.
