Very nice coding, but unsure about front-end ASP code.

Q. Does it use a ASP:Hyperlink or Button Column?

Q. Does ClientID refer to the data going to the ClipBoard?

1) It can be either a HyperLink or a Button column, since they both have onClick attribute.

2) ClientID refers to the control inside the first cell (e.Row.Cells[0].ClientID).  If the control is not the first cell, then you need to change the index into the Cells property.

Q. Does it use a ASP:Hyperlink or Button Column?
The onclick event can be any control, but it might be more logical if it were a link or button.

Q. Does ClientID refer to the data going to the ClipBoard?
The ClientID is the ID used by the JavaScript client to find the controls on the HTML document.

Here is a complete working example:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>

    <script type="text/javascript">
          
        function CopyToClipBoard(controlToFind) 
        {
            var copiedText=document.getElementById('copiedText');
            copiedText.innerText = document.getElementById(controlToFind).innerText;
            Copied = copiedText.createTextRange();
            Copied.execCommand("Copy");
        } 
    </script>
    <script runat="server">
        protected void testGrid_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].Attributes.Add("onclick", "CopyToClipBoard('" + e.Row.Cells[0].ClientID + "');");
                e.Row.Cells[1].Attributes.Add("onclick", "CopyToClipBoard('" + e.Row.Cells[1].ClientID + "');");
            }
        }
    </script>

</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <textarea id="copiedText" style="display: none;" rows="5" cols="10"></textarea>
        <div>
            Click on the Value cell to copy the color hex value into the clipboard.<br />
            <asp:GridView ID="testGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="XmlDataSource1" OnRowDataBound="testGrid_RowDataBound">
                <Columns>
                    <asp:BoundField DataField="name" HeaderText="name" SortExpression="name" />
                    <asp:BoundField DataField="value" HeaderText="value" SortExpression="value" />
                </Columns>
            </asp:GridView>
            <asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlDataSource1" runat="server">
                <Data>
                    <colors>
                        <color name="Red" value="#FF0000"/>
                        <color name="Green" value="#00FF00"/>
                        <color name="Blue" value="#0000FF"/>
                        <color name="Cyan" value="#00FFFF"/>
                        <color name="Purple" value="#FF00FF"/>
                        <color name="Yellow" value="#FFFF00"/>
                    </colors>
                </Data>
            </asp:XmlDataSource>
        </div>
    </form>

Q. Where does "ClientID" fit into your datagrid or xml code?
I'm pulling data from SQL data base.

The XML is the datasource for the grid.  You can use any datasource and the code should work.

The ClientID is the name used to find the control in JavaScript using the document.getElementById() function.
