    My plan was to download the .js files from the server and then look to see what the executed function does.. This might give a clue as to how to move forward.

    this is the called method : javascript:__doPostBack('lnkShowGridWithPaging','' )

    and this is the source code of the method

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    	function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) {
    		var theform;
    		if (window.navigator.appName.toLowerCase().indexOf("microsoft") > -1) {
    			theform = document.Form1;
    		}
    		else {
    			theform = document.forms["Form1"];
    		}
    		theform.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget.split("$").join(":");
    		theform.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;
    		theform.submit();
    	}
    // -->
    this is the only place in all files ( in the HTML file) i found the method , but it's commented out

    please advice

    Thanks
