    hi Shiji,

    try out this:

    lblDispplay.text = gridview1.rows[idx].cells[0].text;

    this will give you the text in first cell of the selected row. instead of 0 you can specify the column no. whose value you want to get.

    try e.item.itemindex

     as in:


    That should work.

    I made a post yesterday about client side validation with a link to my video site. As it happens, this video shows the code working too so if you have 10 minutes it is worth a watch.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Tom,


    Thanks for your reply,but even this one also giving the problem

    I will be grateful if you give the complete coding inside the rowcommand event of the gridview to retrieve the cell value......

    Watch the video on my site mate, the code is shown in that.

    Failing that.... This is me grabbing a textbox (and it's contents) from a datagrid....

    Protected Sub item_click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As DataGridCommandEventArgs)

    lblMessage.Text = ""

    If e.CommandSource.CommandName = "Clicked" Then

    If grdDemo.Items(e.Item.ItemIndex).Cells(0).Controls.Count > 0 Then

    Dim myTextBox As TextBox = grdDemo.Items(e.Item.ItemIndex).Cells(0).FindControl("txtPopMeUp")

    If Not IsNothing(myTextBox) Then

    If Trim(myTextBox.Text) <> "" Then

    lblMessage.Text = ("Message from the server side: " & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & myTextBox.Text & " must be a valid date!")

    End If

    End If

    End If

    End If

    End Sub
