In the previous page in my web app I have a gridview with a checkbox column and values in the other columns. How do I get the values from the gridview in the previous page from the gridview? I figured I'd loop through the gridview in the previous page like below and ones that are checked I'd just grab those values and put them in my current page.
For Each row As GridViewRow In myGV.Rows

                    Dim cb As CheckBox = row.FindControl("mycheckbox")

                    If cb IsNot Nothing AndAlso cb.Checked Then

               

'do my stuff

end if

Just to verify - you have a Gridview with AllowPaging turned on.  You are trying to access every row of the gridview, not just the current page but you are having a problem.  Is that correct?

I turned allowpaging off. Pretty much I select rows by checking a checkbox column in the gridview and click a button so that I can go to a new page and display the ones that I checked.

OK, that makes sense.  So what are you using as your underlying datasource - is it a datatable?

Do you want to post your code?

So if you are only displaying selected records in your gridview then you can maintain the checked state for all the records elsewhere.  Here is an example of how to do that - hope it helps!

Thanks for the example (250 points) that really helps....but how do I reference the datatable on that page when I goto the next page?

Pretty much I was just binding the datagridview to a connection I already established. I took that example from above and grabbed data from the database then pretty much created a new datatable by reading in the table I already had to handle the itemstate but when I try and sort now it says it fired event Sorting which wasn't handled. Do I have to build that from scratch??


Below is the code that I had in my example that I created a new connection and bound the datagrid to it.
<asp:GridView ID="gvterm" runat="server" AllowSorting="True" 

                AutoGenerateColumns="False" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#000066" 

                BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="4" 

                DataSourceID="ORCCON" Width="775px">

                <RowStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="#003399" />

                <Columns>

                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Select">

                        <ItemTemplate>

                            <asp:CheckBox ID="Select" runat="server" />

                        </ItemTemplate>

                        <ControlStyle Font-Underline="False" />

                        <HeaderStyle Font-Underline="True" />

                    </asp:TemplateField>

                    <asp:BoundField DataField="EMPLOYEE_ID" DataFormatString="{0:F0}" 

                        HeaderText="EMPLOYEE_ID" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="EMPLOYEE_ID" />

                    <asp:BoundField DataField="PFI" HeaderText="Employment" SortExpression="Employment" />

                    <asp:BoundField DataField="FIRST_NAME" HeaderText="FIRST_NAME" 

                        SortExpression="FIRST_NAME" />

                    <asp:BoundField DataField="LAST_NAME" HeaderText="LAST_NAME" 

                        SortExpression="LAST_NAME" />

                    <asp:BoundField DataField="DOB" DataFormatString="{0:d}" HeaderText="DOB" 

                        SortExpression="DOB" />

                </Columns>

                <FooterStyle BackColor="#99CCCC" ForeColor="#003399" />

                <PagerStyle BackColor="#99CCCC" ForeColor="#003399" HorizontalAlign="Left" />

                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#009999" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#CCFF99" />

                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#003399" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#CCCCFF" />

            </asp:GridView>

        </div>

Excellent - sounds like you are on track.  Yes, you have to build the sorting from scratch and it is a bit of a pain but there are lots of good examples of how to do this floating around.  I don't know why there isn't some kind of default implementation - maybe there is and I don't know about it!

But is there a way to go to a new webpage like Server.Transfer("~/default2.aspx", True) and get the values from the datagrid on default.aspx?

You can store the values in Context.Items and after the Server.Transfer that info will still be in Context.Items for you to access.  Also, you had mentioned that you were persisting using a DB so of course you could use that as well.
