I have a Visual Studio 2005 asp app with a GridView.  In the row_created event I do the following :

            e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.cursor='hand';this.style.textDecoration='underline';this.originalstyle=this.style.backgroundColor;this.style.backgroundColor='#EEFF00'")
            e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.textDecoration='none';this.style.backgroundColor=this.originalstyle;")
            e.Row.Attributes("onclick") = ClientScript.GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Me.GridView1, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex)

On the row click,  I get an error pasted in code snippet section.
Please advise.
Thanks,
Howard

2 things you can try:
- Use the Page.ClientScript.RegisterForEventValidation(ctrl. UniqueID)
- Set the <pages EnableEventValidation="false" &/> in the web.config

Where?
and,
Do you mean something like:

            e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.cursor='hand';this.style.textDecoration='underline'; _
                this.originalstyle=this.style.backgroundColor;this.style.backgroundColor='#EEFF00'")

            e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.textDecoration='none';this.style.backgroundColor=this.originalstyle;")
            e.Row.Attributes("onclick") = ClientScript.GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Me.GridView1, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex)
            Page.ClientScript.RegisterForEventValidation(GridView1. UniqueID)

quite obvious .. first one, Page.ClientScript.RegisterForEventValidation will go to page load and i have already mentioned second one (web.config).
check the link for example:

First,  if it was obvious, I would not have asked you to clarify, no?  That is obvious.  However, thanks for the link.
