Hi,

Can someone please tell me how I can apply a click event to a button in a GridView.  I add a templateControl, and add two buttons.  What I want to do is for example, when the button is clicked , the event should be a response.write

a:
The COmmand Argument of the button
b:
The value in the 1 st Cell of that Row.

I have been casting, using different Event Args and I still cannot do it. It is really annoying.

Thanks in advance

ANdrew

You will need to catch the button click event in the RowCommand event.

So give your button a CommandName and then in the RowCommand event check for the CommandName and then work from there.

Thanks Andrew, Unfortunately I don't have a dev environment on hand to post code but it seems right from memory at least :)

ok what I have so far, is this. I have placed the button in the GridView Template Control. Then I have added the onrowcommand to the gridview tag. it calls the first function and the second function is where it handles the click. What SHould I put in or am i way of the mark?

   protected void View_C(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        Button MyButton = new Button();
        MyButton = (Button)sender;
        MyButton.Click += new EventHandler(MyButton_Click);
    }

    void MyButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        throw new Exception("The method or operation is not implemented.");
       
    }

Why are you creating a new event handler?

You can either just handle it in RowCommand or call another method to do the processing...

You say it hits the first function? If so then ignore the fact that it is a button and continue coding as usual.

again, you have just EDUCATED me with two small posts. Excellent. Cheers gavin.

    protected void View_C(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        Response.Write(e.CommandArgument+""+e.CommandName);
    }
