something like:

var url = string.Format('CandidateProfile.aspx?candidateID={0}';", DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "candidateID"));

ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "openWindow",
 "<script>openWindow('url')</script>");

function openWindow(url, redirectUrl) {
    var x = window.open(url, 'mynewwin', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=1,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=1,width=600,height=520,modal=yes,alwaysRaised=yes');
    x.focus();
    window.location = redirectUrl;
}

Open in new window


or calling Response.Redirect:

Response.Redirect(string.Format("CandidateProfile.aspx?candidateID={0}';", DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "candidateID")", "_blank", "menubar=0,scrollbars=1,width=780,height=900,top=10");

Open in new window



change the width/height according to your needs.



cheers

In your aspx add script tag and code the function inside.
So upon row click, the function is being called passing the url with relevant data.
I wasnt infront of a pc but this is the idea.
U can try response.redirect but im not its gonna work, i havent tested it yet

 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow && e.Row.RowState == DataControlRowState.Alternate)
            {
                if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                {
                          for (x=0; x < cellCount-1; x++ )
                        e.Row.Cells[x].Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:window.open('CandidateProfile.aspx?candidateID=" + DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "candidateID") + "',null,'left=162px, top=134px, width=500px, height=500px, status=no, resizable= yes, scrollbars=yes, toolbar=no, location=no, menubar=no');");
