The way to do this is prolly to capture the mouse move event on the data grid, then get the location of the mouse relative to the grid, then go ahead and write a routine to get the row that is at the location of the mouse...

Try to capture the onMouseOver event of the DataGridTextBoxColumn.

I used the OnItemCreated in my datagrid to do this for one of my webprojects:

For example:
OnItemCreated="List_DataGrid_ItemCreated"

Then in your codebehind (C#):
protected void ListNews_DataGrid_ItemCreated(Object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)
{
      DataGridItem myItem = e.Item;
      switch (myItem.ItemType)
      {
            case ListItemType.Item:
                  myItem.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.backgroundColor=\"#FFD3D3\"");
                  myItem.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.backgroundColor=\"#D9D9D9\"");
                  break;
            case ListItemType.AlternatingItem:
                  myItem.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.backgroundColor=\"#FFD3D3\"");
                  myItem.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.backgroundColor=\"#E9E9E9\"");
                  break;
            default:
                  break;
      }
}

Job Done.
