Select row from DatagridView C#

I notice when ever I click on a cell it only highlights that particular cell only...

Is there a way to make it when the user clicks on the cell it highlights the entire row?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Changing the SelectionMode property of the grid to FullRowSelect should do it.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
       
        var OldColor;
       
        function changeColor(Sender,Mouse)
        {
           
            var Color;
           if(Mouse=="Over")
            {
                OldColor=Sender.bgColor;
                Color="silver";
            }
           else
                Color=OldColor;
           
            Sender.bgColor=Color;
        }
       
        var GridOldColor;
        function GridColorChange(Sender,mouse)
        {
            if(mouse=="Over")
           {
                GridOldColor=Sender.style.backgroundColor;
                Sender.style.backgroundColor="Silver";    
           }
           else
           {
                Sender.style.backgroundColor=GridOldColor;
           }
        }
 </script>


and in your aspx.cs file, have this code

//GVProjectStatus is a name of grid.
protected void GVProjectStatus_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "GridColorChange(this,'Over');");
        e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "GridColorChange(this,'Out');");
    }
