Here is how I do it:

Step #1:  Define the function:

function ClickRow(e)
{
  var target = event.srcElement;
  while (target.tagName != "TR")
    target = target.parentNode;
   
  var x;
  var selectedIndex = document.getElementById("hiddenSelectedRow").value;

  if (selectedIndex.length > 0)    
  {
    var previous = target.parentNode.rows[selectedIndex];
   
    previous.className = previous.className.replace(" selected","");
  };
 
  target.className += " selected";
 
  document.getElementById("hiddenSelectedRow").value = target.rowIndex - 1;

}

There is a hidden element 'hiddenSelectedRow', which persists the selected row for the data grid.

Step #2:  

Attach the handler to the onclick event for each <tr> element:

function registerClientSideDataGrid(id)
{
   var table = document.getElementById(id);
  var cols = table.getElementsByTagName("col");
 
  //debugger;
 
  if (table.tBodies.length > 1)
  {
    for (var i = 0; i < table.tBodies[1].rows.length; i++)
    {
      var row = table.tBodies[1].rows[i];
    row.onclick = ClickRow;    
    } //for
  }      
}

Hi pradeepsudharsan,

In your ItemDataBound event, use:

e.item.attributes.add("onclick","doSomething(this);")

And then code the javascript function doSomething accordingly.

If you want to fire SelectedItemIndex on row click then you can do something like following in ItemDataBound event. Additionally, you can change color of background when user hovers over row.

e.Item.Attributes.Add("OnMouseOver","if(this.style.backgroundColor != '#669999')this.style.backgroundColor='LightBlue';this.style.cursor='hand';");
e.Item.Attributes.Add("OnMouseOut","if(this.style.backgroundColor != '#669999')this.style.backgroundColor ='White';");
string strID = ( (LinkButton) e.Item.Cells[5].Controls[0] ).ClientID.Replace("__","$_") ; // Replace 5 with number of Select linkbutton column
e.Item.Attributes.Add("OnClick","javascript:__doPostBack('" + strID  + "');" );

1) There is the HTML tab to drag/drop a hidden element to the page.

2) To get the entire thing started, add this script block to the end of the page:

<script language="Javascript">
   registerClientSideDataGrid('DataGrid1');
</script>

3) This assumes that the ID for the DataGrid is 'DataGrid1'.

4) The attachment process is here in registerClientSideDataGrid:

    row.onclick = ClickRow;

hi TheLearnedOne ,

<script language="Javascript">
   registerClientSideDataGrid('DataGrid1');
</script>

I call this code after data binding in the server side using Page.RegisterStartUpScript Function
But nothing happens.

Does it run?  Can you debug the Javascript?  I can't look over your shoulder and see the exact problem.

Hi  TheLearnedOne ,

<script language="Javascript">
   registerClientSideDataGrid('DataGrid1');
</script>

I call this code after data binding in the server side using Page.RegisterStartUpScript Function.
But the code inside the  registerClientSideDataGrid('DataGrid1') function does not work.
So i change the logic as follows.


function registerClientSideDataGrid(id)
  {
  debugger;
  alert("test1");
      var table = document.getElementById(id);
      var cols = table.getElementsByTagName("col");
 
            //debugger;
 
            /*if (table.tBodies.length > 1)
            {
                        for (var i = 0; i < table.tBodies[1].rows.length; i++)
                        {
                              var row = table.tBodies[1].rows[i];
                              row.onclick = ClickRow;    
                        } //for
            }  */
            var i=0;
            if(table.rows.length>1)
            {
            alert("test2"+table.rows.length);
               for(i=1;i<table.rows.length;i++)
               {
             
               alert("test3"+i);
                   var row=table.rows[i];
                   row.onclick = ClickRow;  
                   
               }
               
            }  
  }

Now my problem is ,
i could not understand the logic in
function ClickRow(e)
      {  }    function.

also i want to store the clicked row's particular column values in hidden fields.
i.e the exact problem is ,if i click the particular row ,i want to store some column values of that row in some hidden fields in client side.
Can u plz help me?


regards
pradeep

Pradeep,

1) This is code from a custom web control for a client-side DataGrid that renders its own HTML, so that explains the table.tbodies.length check.

2) Are you getting the alert:   alert("test1");

3) Would comments help?

function ClickRow(e)
{

  // Find the row (<tr>) element, even if the cell was clicked.
  var target = event.srcElement;
  while (target.tagName != "TR")
    target = target.parentNode;

  // Get the hidden element that stores the previous selection
  var selectedIndex = document.getElementById("hiddenSelectedRow").value;

  // Check to see if there was a previous row click
  if (selectedIndex.length > 0)    
  {
    // Get the row element from the table.
    var previous = target.parentNode.rows[selectedIndex];
   
    // De-select the previously highlighted row.
    previous.className = previous.className.replace(" selected","");
  };
 
  // Highlight the newly selected row a valid CSS style name
  target.className += " selected";
 
  // Store the selected row in the hidden element.
  document.getElementById("hiddenSelectedRow").value = target.rowIndex - 1;

}
