Hilight a HTMLTable row when selected

How can I Hilight a HTMLTable row when selected?   I know how to change the color, and I have code to find the row by ID, but how/where can I define handle a click event?   I want to do this in the codebehind

This code hilights a row:

           ctl = CType(Me.Page.FindControlRecursively("row"), HtmlTableRow)
            If Not IsNothing(ctl) Then

                 ' This will be used for each cell on the row.
                Dim recordRowCell As System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlTableCell

                ' Set the background color on the record row in RGB format.
                Dim color As String = "#fff000"

                ' For each cell, set the background color.
                For Each recordRowCell In ctl.Cells

                    ' Override the record row background color -- since each data cell uses a
                    ' style (by default: table_cell or table_cellr)
                    recordRowCell.Style.Add("background-color", color)

                Next

            End If

You do not need code behind use css to add mouse hover effect on each row as follows:
.mytable tr:hover,  selectedrow
{ 
  background-color: #632a2a;
  color: #fff;
}  

Open in new window


I assume your table markup is like:
<table class="mytable">
          <tr>
                   Your table contents goes here
          </tr>
</table>

Open in new window

Note: Class mytable is only used to identify which table requires the css rule.

I f you need to do this when user clicks the row, you can add Javascript onclick event and define a method  that remove the class selectedrow from the selected row markup and added to the current row defined by the click event. Let me know if you want to go that path to provide the code and if you are using jquery. (VS2010 and VS2012 add this JS library by default to web projects)

OK, this method in Jquery setup all click event on cells as follows:
function SetupClientClick() {
$("TD").click(function() {
  $(this).closest("tr").siblings().removeClass("selectedrow");
  $(this).parents("tr").toggleClass("selectedrow", this.clicked);
});
};

Open in new window

where
.selectedrow
{ 
  background-color: #632a2a;
  color: #fff;
} 

Open in new window

You can call it once your document is ready or as a startup script (see example first link)

I wrote this today, is it what you're looking for?  Client-side click?
