I have a Gridview connected to a datasource in my C# code. I now wish to retrieve some data from this GW without asking the DB. The data sould be collected from a certain row when a checkbox has been triggered. In the example below I was able to retrieve the data corresponding to a key in the GW. The question is: How do I retrieve data from the other colums which are not keys in the GW?

string tmp = ((long)GridView1.DataKeys[((GridViewRow)cb.NamingContainer).RowIndex][1]).ToString();

Assume i is the index of the row that is triggered by the checkbox, and j is the specific cell that you are interested in. You can get the value like this:
GridViewRow gvr = GridView1.Rowsii];
string tmp = gvr.Cells[j-1].Text              // the index of the cells starts from 0
0

if you know what row was hit, then you could use
GridView1.Rows[intRow].Cells[myCell].Text
