Okay, I will attempt to make this question a bit more simple.  I have a gridview on a webpage that displays user information. What I am trying to do is allow that person to click on that row and it redirects them to another page to edit that partcular row.

Ok first step is to hide the select button column in the gridview by setting it's css-class:
<Columns>
            <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" ItemStyle-CssClass="HiddenColumn" HeaderStyle-CssClass="HiddenColumn">
                <HeaderStyle CssClass="HiddenColumn"></HeaderStyle>
                <ItemStyle CssClass="HiddenColumn"></ItemStyle>
            </asp:CommandField>
 </Columns>

Then in the code behind we place this code in the RowDataBound event of the gridView:

Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
'This removes the use of the Select option
'To select a row jsut click on it
If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.cursor='hand';")
e.Row.Attributes.Add("onclick", Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" + e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
End If
End Sub
And then you can find which row has been selected via code in the SelectedIndexChanged event of the GridView:
For example maybe you wanted to get the data in Cell 5 to add into the querystring when you redirect to the other page so you know what data to display:
Protected Sub GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GridView1.SelectedIndexChanged

Dim s As String = GridView1.SelectedRow.Cells(5).Text
'Then redirect user to different page
Response.Redirect("otherPage.aspx?item=" & s
End Sub
Hope this helps.
