Retrieve DataKey field from Datagrid

Hi guys, I have a datagrid that comprises of information taken from a db.

The first col is hidden and retrieves the items id, the second col is a ImageButton. I do I click on the image button and retrieve its key in a code behind page?

All you would need is an event handler for the image button click. To retrieve a value from a specific datagrid cell:


Or more generically:

Jokra I have sorted this out now, i was just about to delete this q.

But maybe you could help me on this.

How do i do the following:

<asp:HyperLinkColumn runat="server"
      DataNavigateUrlFormatString="'about:blank','MoreInfo.aspx?id={0}', 'toolbar=no, scrollbars=no,menubar=no,width=500,height=100')"
      DataTextFormatString="View More">                                                      
I think you're missing:

try this..

     DataNavigateUrlFormatString="'about:blank','MoreInfo.aspx?id={0}', 'toolbar=no, scrollbars=no,menubar=no,width=500,height=100')"
     DataTextFormatString="View More"
