Select a row in gridview

I have a hyperlink in my gridview that when a user clicks on it, he/she is directed to another page. It is working great. However, I want to be able to redirect the user to another webpage depending on what row he selects. For example: If the row he/she clicks on is an apartment, then I want to direct them to apartment.aspx. However, if the row is a house then I want to redirect to house.aspx.

I am sure I can simply have it refer to a column in my database with that info. However, I can't see where I am able to do that. I hope I am making sense on this.

Hi,
What you can do is get the hyperlink to call a function that returns a string to define the NavigateUrl. E.g
 <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" CssClass="hlStyle" NavigateUrl='<%# FormatUrl( Eval("[Column name]")) %>'>View</asp:HyperLink>  
'[Column name] will be whatever column in your database you are using to define the link. In your case wether its a apartment or house. So in the code behind we put this function:
Public Function FormatUrl(ByVal type As String) As String
        Select Case type
                      case "apartment"
                                   Return "Apartment.aspx"
                      case "house"
                                   Return "House.aspx"
End Function
 Hope this helps
