Changing the cusor on a web page

I want to change the cursor on a web page when clicking on a row on a gridview to a wait cursor.
If I was doing the for a button, I'd use:

Button1.Attributes.add("onclick", "document.body.style.cusor='wait';"); which works fine.

Is there a equivalent for the gridview;

eg:
Gridview1.Attributes.add("onselectedindexchanged", "document.body.style.cusor='wait';"); or something?

Many thanks

@ged325's way should work fine,  but the problem is that "cursor" is mispelled:

e.Row.Attributes.Add("onclick", "document.body.style.cusor='wait';");

needs to be cursor

Maybe give this a try:

foreach (var row in GridView1.Rows)
{
    row.Attributes.Add("onclick", "document.body.style.cusor='wait';");
}

Open in new window

Use the rowDataBound event instead:

 protected void gvGrid_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
  e.Row.Add("onclick", "document.body.style.cusor='wait';");
}

row does not contain a definition for Attributes- so this won't work.
Sorry!

Surely:

 protected void gvGrid_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
  e.Row.Attributes.Add("onclick", "document.body.style.cusor='wait';");
}

Still doesn't appear to work- I'm using the auto-generated select button- would that matter?

Mavellous (that'll teach me to copy and paste!)

I'll have to award @Gewgala points for pointing that out, I'm afraid!

Cheers guys!
