Hello,

I am using a LinkButton in a GridView I am using. In the same column there is also a label.

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Computer">
<ItemTemplate>
  <label id="lblComputerName" runat="server" style="cursor:hand;">
  <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.computerName")%>
</label>
<asp:Panel CssClass="popupMenu" ID="PopupMenu" runat="server">
  <div style="border:1px outset red;padding:2px;width:100px">
  <div><asp:LinkButton ID="lnkStart" Enabled="false" runat="server" OnClick="StartApp"     CommandName="Start" Text="Start" /></div>
<div><asp:LinkButton ID="lnkStop" runat="server" OnClick="StopApp" CommandName="Stop" Text="Stop" /></div>
</div>
</asp:Panel>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Computer ID">
<ItemTemplate>
  <asp:Label runat="server" ID="lblComputerID" CssClass="linkcursor" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.computerID") %>'>
  </asp:Label>
  </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

When a linkButton is clicked, I'd like to know on which row it was clicked. Actualy, the information i need is the Value in the ComputerID column in the same row.
How can I get it?

Thank you

in the gridview set the the datakeynames to computerID

then in the rowcommand event you can get the datakey name using the e.commandArgument property

Do it like this

<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkStart" Enabled="false" runat="server" OnClick="StartApp"     CommandName="Start" Text="Start"
CommandArgument='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container,"RowIndex")%>'
 />

and in server code
access it as below

((LinkButton)sender).CommandArgument
