Still your question is too vague, do you have an error message?
you can use:

string speakerName = GridView1.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value.ToString();

notice that is not the same as:

string speakerName = (string)GridView1.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value;

because last will be fail if value is not of type string

Hello
Sorry for Incomplete question..
I dont have any errors..
and I cant find .value in the below statement which you gave it might be because I'm building a web application

string speakerName = GridView1.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value.ToString();  //Cell[0].Value is not found

Yeah, for web - have to use Text property.


If it's web you probably need to get this value from the response object, I'm not very sure about that.

Try something like:

GridView1..Rows[0].Cells[0].Controls[0]).Text;

This is what I was looking for

foreach (GridViewRow gvr in this.GridView1.Rows)
                   {
                        Label lblName = (Label)gvr.FindControl("lblSpeakerName");
                       Label lblTitle = (Label)gvr.FindControl("lblSpeakerTitle");
                    }

Basically, if you use TemplateField to display data, then you will use FindControl to access the content. If you use BoundField, then you use Cells[i].Text to access the content.

Thank You anyway

In this case GridView1..Rows[0].Cells[0].Controls[0]).Text; should work...

Does not matter - you have found the solution.

But something tells me that the clicked cell has just ONE control that you retrieve with this code. Not sure of course.
BTW, if it works it has one advantage over searching a label - performance.
