Hi All,
I have a Gridview is page1 which has several rows in it.
I have a button in page2 which when clicked has to disable few rows in Gridview from page1.
How can this be done?

Thanks..
Rohit

First we need to clarify. Is a Gridview control also displayed on page 2 that displays the same data as the Gridview on page 1 (except for the disabled rows)?

Hi Ororiole,

No, there is no gridview on page 2.
But i need put a condition in page 2  in a button click event
such that when page 2 is executed the rows in gridview on page1 gets disabled.

Thanks...
Rohit.

Server page programming is stateless. That means when you are on page two there is no Gridview control on page 1 to access.  It only exists when page 1 is running on the server.

What you need to do is create a Session variable when the button is clicked. So inside your button click eventhandler on page two do this:
Session("clicked") = True

Now in page one you can check to see if the Session variable has been set:

        If Not Session("click") Is Nothing Then
            Dim click As Boolean = CType(Session("click"), Boolean)
 
            If click = True Then
                'do something with gridview
            End If
 
        End If
