In if a user clicks on a GridView row what code do I use to get the row index?
I currently use the code below but if there is only one row in the GridView then it doesn't run

    Protected Sub GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles GridView1.SelectedIndexChanged
            Dim oMessageNumber As String
            Dim oSelectedRowIndex As String = Me.GridView1.SelectedRow.RowIndex

            oMessageNumber = Me.GridView1.Rows(oSelectedRowIndex).Cells(0).Text


        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub

I tried adding the following code but got the error shown in the image attached

    Private Sub GridView1_RowCreated(sender As Object, e As GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCreated

        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            e.Row.Attributes.Add("onclick", ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(Me.GridView1, "Select$" & e.Row.RowIndex.ToString()))
            e.Row.Style.Add("cursor", "pointer")
        End If

    End Sub
