In this post we will see how to use SelectedIndexChanged Event of GridView in ASP.Net. SelectedIndexChanged event get fired when we click select button of the gridview row. We can use this event to perform some operation on form when row is selected like call custom routines, change labels, change titles..etc.

Sample code to see how SelectedIndexChanged event in gridview works [ASP.Net, C#]:

<asp:GridView ID ="GridView1" runat="server" 
onselectedindexchanged="GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" AutoGenerateSelectButton="true">


<asp:BoundFieldDataField="ID"HeaderText="ID"SortExpression="ID" />

<asp:BoundFieldDataField="Name"HeaderText="Name"SortExpression="Name" />

<asp:BoundFieldDataField="Address"HeaderText="Address" SortExpression="Address" />



<asp:SqlDataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"runat="server" ConnectionString="<
;%$ ConnectionStrings:PersonConnectionString %>" 
SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [PersonInfo]"></asp:SqlDataSource>

protected void GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

  GridViewRow row = GridView1.SelectedRow;
  lblMessage.Text = "Selected" + row.Cells[2].Text + ".";
