I have a DataTable and am able to use some of the previous help I've received on here to add a link to one of the columns that will open a modal.  I need to able to add an event to the table row selection.  I need some examples of how to to this.

I would like to be able to add a background color to the row when it is selected.
Show a Button on the page (that is hidden on page load).
Add an onclick function for the Button that opens a modal and passes some of the data.  


Thank You!

Do you mean GridView control? Or something else? DataTable is just basically data...
For a GridView see the SelectedIndexChanging event:

Hey,
If you are using Javascript DataTables then you can use a css class to change the background color of the row when select that particular row.

.row_selected td {
    background-color: black !important; /* Add !important to make sure override datables base styles */
 }


Check the URL below for changing the row color on row Click event

https://datatables.net/examples/api/select_single_row.html
Try below code
Javascript
$(document).ready(function() {
    var table = $('#example').DataTable();
 
    $('#example tbody').on( 'click', 'tr', function () {
        if ( $(this).hasClass('selected') ) {
            $(this).removeClass('selected');
        }
        else {
            table.$('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
            $(this).addClass('selected');
        }
    } );
 
    $('#button').click( function () {
        table.row('.selected').remove().draw( false );
    } );
} );
