I am using vb so i changed it to
GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.SelectedRow.Index)

It gives me the error "index not a member of system....gridviewrow"

I did my best to convert my C# to VB, but just in case I have both...

protected Sub GridView_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)

            'find out which row was clicked
            Dim rowIndex as Int = e.CommandArgument;

            dim DBID as Int = sender.DataKeys(rowIndex).Value;

End Sub

protected void CategoryDataGrid_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
      {
            // find out which row was clicked
            int rowIndex = Utilities.CommonFunctions.ConvertToInt(e.CommandArgument);

            String DBID = Utilities.CommonFunctions.ConvertToString(((GridView)sender).DataKeys[rowIndex].Value);
      }

hi,
could you try this
    protected void gv1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, GridViewSelectEventArgs e)
    {
        int indx = e.NewSelectedIndex;
       //then you can access new selected row & its cells using
       //gv1.Rows[indx].Cells
    }

regards,
satish.

Ended up with this result
Dim selectedRecord As DataKey = GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.SelectedIndex)
Dim idValue As String = selectedRecord.Value
