To access a value of a column you can use SelectedRow:

GridViewRow row = GridView1.SelectedRow;
lblMyLabel.Text = row.Cells[2].Text;

Sorry this is the cod behind;

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        #region handle first item
        // Set session vars on this page 

        if (Session["isFirstItem"] == null)
        {
            itemNumber.Text = "0";
        }
        
        if (itemNumber.Text == "0")
        {
            itemNumber.Text = "1";
            Session["isFirstItem"] = itemNumber.Text;
        }
        // Get the Session zone mumber        
        if (Session["isFirstItem"] == "2")
        {
            itemNumber.Text = "2";
            lbShipZone1.Text = (string)(Session["zoneNumberSession"]);
        }
                    
       
GridViewRow row = GridView4.SelectedRow;
            Label7.Text = row.Cells[0].Text;

        #endregion

Hi

You have set the DataKeyName for the gridview as the ProductID. The value for the Product Ids can be retrieved in the page load method as

 for (int iRow = 0; iRow> GridView4.Rows.Count; iRow++)
    {
              int iProductId=  Convert.ToInt32(GridView4.DataKeys[iRow ].Values[0]);
     }

I have put the following code in the pageload Event, but got nothing.  the label 7 stays empty

code
for (int iRow = 0; iRow > GridView4.Rows.Count; iRow++)
        {
            int iProductId = Convert.ToInt32(GridView4.DataKeys[iRow].Values[0]);
            Label7.Text = iProductId.ToString();

All I'm Trying to do is get the ProductID out of A gridview control and into a Variable as the page Loads.

I can do it on a button click but can't figure it out how to do it in page load.

Got it.

Had to put this in the rowCreated event;
foreach (GridViewRow myRow in GridView4.Rows)
        {
            string decimalString = myRow.Cells[2].Text;
            Label7.Text = decimalString;
        }
