ItemTemplate (Menu)

Hi All,

I am using C# along with a GridView. The gridview contains an ID field for each record on the grid.
I have an ItemTemplate field in my GridView that contains a Menu object.

Question:
1. When a user selects an item from the Menu object pertaining to ID #4 on the grid how can i capture the GridViews ID (#4) Field in the Menu_MenuItemClick event?

Nevermind guys,

I found the answer:

Menu selecteditem = (Menu)sender;

GridViewRow row = (GridViewRow)selecteditem.NamingContainer;
 int l = System.Convert.ToInt32(row.Cells[2].Text);

either DataKeys or get the value from the cell itself:
MyGridView.SelectedItem.Cells[intIDCellIndex].InnerText

i have tried the following

int k = Convert.ToInt32(GridView1.SelectedRow.Cells[4].Text);
int l = int.Parse(row.Cells[2].Text);  

Also, dfu23 .... there is no "SelectedItem"  for my GridView

None of these attempts return the value.

Here is a code snip of the MenuItemClick event

protected void Menu1_MenuItemClick(object sender, MenuEventArgs e)
        {
         
            //int l = int.Parse(row.Cells[2].Text);  //Nee to Get ID from grid
            //Menu selitem = (Menu)GridView1.Rows[4].FindControl("Comments");
           
            switch (e.Item.Value)
            {
                case "Comments":
                    Response.Write("<script>window.open('Comments.aspx?xID=" + l + " ','_new', 'width=600,height=330, menubar = no, scrollbars = no resizable = no');</script>");
                    break;
                case "KeyView":
                    break;
                case "SupView":
                    break;
                case "Reload":
                    break;
            }
           
        }

:) ... I am using the Menu CONTROL from the Toolbox listed under Navigation.

I just dropped the Menu control into the ItemTemplate and now i need to know how to access values from the Grid from the menu when an item in the menu is clicked.
