I am dynamically creating a gridview in the code behind and need to add a OnRowDataBound event, how do i do this??? i cant seem to find any example on this
Watch Question

when you create the new datagrid add this
gvCurrent.RowDataBound += new GridViewRowEventHandler(gvCurrent_RowDataBound);

then add a  event handler like this

protected void gvCurrent_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
