Its very easy.
You can go to design view and then go to edit template for that gridview.
You will get link button there. Just double-click on that.

you will get click event automatically generated.

Hope this helps you.

here it is, there are two solutions, use either one...
        <asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AllowPaging="True"
            AllowSorting="True" OnRowCommand="GridView2_RowCommand" 
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Fnumber" HeaderText="Fnumber" />
                <asp:ButtonField ButtonType="Button" runat="server" CommandName="RowClick" Text="Select"  />

    protected void GridView2_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
        if (e.CommandName == "Select")
            /* use this format or one below
            int index = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument);
            GridViewRow selectedRow = GridView2.Rows[index];
            TableCell tcFNumber = selectedRow.Cells[0];
            String Fnumber = tcFNumber.Text;
            DataRowView rowView = (DataRowView)e.Row.DataItem;
            String Fnumber = rowView["Fnumber"].ToString();
