Custom User Controls and dynamically created web controls events not firing

I have a peculiar problem and since I am just starting to use .net I am confident I am doing something wrong, but I can't see it and I've wasted a lot of time so far trying to figure it out.  Hopefully one of you can figure it out.

I have a custom User Control and I am dynamically creating a RadioButtonList. If I remove the custom user control from the page the RadioButtonList works as expected and correctly. However, once I add the custom control, it does not fire the SelectedIndexChanged event.
Below is some code. If all I do is remove: "<UC:TOPMENU id="TopMenu1" runat="server"></UC:TOPMENU>", everything works properly. If it's there, "rMrktChooser_SelectedIndexChanged" never is executed. I've tried breakpoints, etc. And, AutoPostBack is True of course.
Thanks in advance!

I hope someone can give me a hand on this one.   This is what I am trying to do:   We need to create a report. We are using a Repeater control to generate a custom grid.

Server Web User Control or Web Custom Control
Ok, I made a DataGrid I like, stuck it in a Web Control Lib, and then to my toolbar. Now I want to take my nice little control and add it to a greater control, maybe place some buttons around it etc. I could always inherit from it in a new custom control and dynamically add the buttons, but I thought about using a Web User Control. I thought I could easily create a Web User Control, drop on my grid and the buttons on a form, and expose some properties and events, but once I got into it, I got a feeling that this isn't what a Web User Control is for. When designing a control li...
