GridView Row

Can any body tell me how I can do this.

I have made a custom template field in my grid view, this contains a button which links to a function in the code.

here is the small function

    protected void Process_Click(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        String value1 = e.Row.Cells[3].Text.ToString();
        value.InnerHtml = value1;

But I cannot get it to work and get this error

Error      1      No overload for 'Process_Click' matches delegate 'System.EventHandler'      C:\Documents and Settings\REA_A\Desktop\test\c_sharp_tests\WebSite2\Default.aspx      39      

Thanks in advance,

Since you have your RowNumber you should just be able to do something like

is there an easier way to get a cells value on a certain row dependant on the button I click?

I think you have to create a handler for the button click event.

Something like:

NameOfYourButtonHere.Click += new EventHandler(this.Process_Click);

I think that is it anyway :O

I am having trouble with that, as the intellisense is not recognising My button at all. I was going to put that code in the Page_Load handler
Create the event handler for GridView.RowCommand and then put your code in there.

Buttons inside a GridView are duplicated depending on how many rows you have so you cannot pick up the button on_Click only that the Row has sent a command.

Take a look and let me know if you need more help.

I used a work around for now but I will try that too.  My problem now is that one, I use a command field that selects the row.  This is how I have got My row number.

My first column is hidden, BUT i need its value.  I have assigned the columns data keys but I do not know how to retrive these, say if I use  GridView1.SelectedRow <-----DataKeys is not a memeber of this.

Can you help>

Thanks so far guys
