1. Create gridview RowDataBound event
2. Create gridview SelectedIndexChanged event
Then add the following code on code-behind

************** RowDataBound EVENT **********
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].Attributes.Add("onmouseover","this.style.cursor='hand'; this.style.backgroundcolor='#000000'");
                e.Row.Cells[0].Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackClientHyperlink(your_gridview_name, "Select$" + e.Row.RowIndex.ToString()));
            }
 
 
********************* SelectedIndexChanged EVENT *******************
get your cell value from selected row with your_gridview_name.SelectedRow.Cells[0].Text;
and then do what you whant when user click
 
Add this code too to override your page Render method
 
protected override void Render(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter writer)
        {
            for (int i = 0; i < your_gridview_name.Rows.Count; i++)
            {
                Page.ClientScript.RegisterForEventValidation(new System.Web.UI.PostBackOptions(your_gridview_name, "Select$" + i.ToString()));
            }
            // Do the standard rendering stuff
            base.Render(writer);
        }
