GridView Rows Navigation using arrow Keys in ASP.NET


I have to highlight a grid view row using keyboard up & down arrow keys. If the user selects the gridview row using a key it should get highlighted and the user should be able to navigate using the keys.
I have used the code from
It works fine if there is no postback for a grid row selection.
I am using it with my gridview and for each row click it will call a button click functionality.
When it is posting back the highlighting is not staying ..Can anyone suggest any solution to this?

Try to set SelecteRowStyle Property with same styling as you are doing in javascript function.
So when you select a row by clicking the selected row styling will be applied to that row on postback.
