GridView in Asp.net - need to select a specific record and once clicked on Select it shoudl go to another website that shows details of that record.

I have a GridView with select enabled, I want the user to select an item from the list and once done, it will go to a details page where they can see all the details, what I need to do is once a person selects a record, I need it to go to a next page and I need to pass a value to that page so that it can search based on that variable. How can this be done? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm programming in ASP.NET and visual studio 2013 express if that helps.

Thank you.

Well. You have to define a hyperlink column which could be selected in the grid. On clicking upon the link you could pass the selected value as QUERY STRING to another page. That page will pop-up. In the detail page you could parse the query string.

Instead of hyperlink you could use linkbutton as well in ASP.NET. Analyze which one would match your needs.



Below links explained well:

Just a quick question, I'm using ASP.NET MVC 4, I got things going but how do I pass the variables between pages, in Webforms, you use page.aspx.vb page, how do I do that in MVC 4?

Thank you for your help!

if you are using MVC, which grid control are you using to render your data ?

if i am not wrong you intend to use Asp.Net Gridview, than its merely possible to get the desired output,  you may follow the link given below

i would highly recommend not to use the above, but the choice is yours.

hope this helps.
