SelectedIndexChanged Event not firing when Select button Clicked

Good morning Experts!  Still trying to educate myself and having a hard time of it.  This is a ASP.NET Website Project (not a Web Application Project).  I have a GridView control on my content  page (within a master page).  When I click the "Select" button on a row I need to save the value in the "Id" column to a session variable so that I can use it elsewhere.  Unfortunately, the event that I thought would be best for this (SelectedIndexChanged) never fires when I click the "Select" button.  Any idea what I'm doing wrong?  Thanks!
    <asp:GridView ID="gvClientAccounts" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" DataSourceID="dsClientAccounts" AutoGenerateColumns="False" OnSelectedIndexChanged="gvClientAccounts_SelectedIndexChanged">
        <Columns>
            <asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="True">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:HyperLink ID="lnkSelect" runat='server' NavigateUrl='<%# String.Format("~/Members/MyGroups.aspx?ClientID={0}", Eval("Id")) %>'>Select</asp:HyperLink>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="ClientName" HeaderText="Client Name" />
        </Columns>
    </asp:GridView><br />

Open in new window


    protected void gvClientAccounts_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Session["ClientID"] = gvClientAccounts.SelectedRow.Cells[0].Text;
    }

Open in new window


    <asp:GridView ID="gvClientAccounts" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" DataSourceID="dsClientAccounts" AutoGenerateColumns="False" OnSelectedIndexChanged="gvClientAccounts_SelectedIndexChanged">
        <Columns>
            <asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="True">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:HyperLink ID="lnkSelect" runat='server' NavigateUrl='<%# String.Format("~/Members/MyGroups.aspx?ClientID={0}", Eval("Id")) %>'>Select</asp:HyperLink>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="ClientName" HeaderText="Client Name" />
        </Columns>
    </asp:GridView><br />

I cannot see a select button for the control.
Add an auto generated select button and when selected this will fire your event


AutoGenerateSelectButton="True"
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.autogenerateselectbutton(v=vs.110).aspx

<asp:GridView ID="gvClientAccounts" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" DataSourceID="dsClientAccounts" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AutoGenerateSelectButton="True" OnSelectedIndexChanged="gvClientAccounts_SelectedIndexChanged">

Of course!  I'm overthinking this.  Did what you said and it works perfectly.  Thank you.
