GridView.SelectedRowStyle Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a reference to the TableItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of the selected row in a GridView control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public TableItemStyle SelectedRowStyle { get; }
/** @property */
public TableItemStyle get_SelectedRowStyle ()

public function get SelectedRowStyle () : TableItemStyle

Property Value

A reference to the TableItemStyle that represents the style of the selected row in a GridView control.

Use the SelectedRowStyle property to control the appearance of the selected row in a GridView control. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively using one of the following methods:

  • Place an attribute in the opening tag of the GridView control in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, SelectedRowStyle-ForeColor).

  • Nest a <SelectedRowStyle> element between the opening and closing tags of the GridView control.

The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, SelectedRowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SelectedRowStyle property to define a custom style for the selected row in a GridView control.


<%@ Page language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">

  void CustomersGridView_SelectedIndexChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    
    // Get the currently selected row using the SelectedRow property.
    GridViewRow row = CustomersGridView.SelectedRow;
        
    // Display the company name from the selected row.
    // In this example, the third column (index 2) contains
    // the company name.
    Message.Text = "You selected " + row.Cells[2].Text + ".";
    
  }

  void CustomersGridView_SelectedIndexChanging(Object sender, GridViewSelectEventArgs e)
  {
        
    // Get the currently selected row. Because the SelectedIndexChanging event
    // occurs before the select operation in the GridView control, the
    // SelectedRow property cannot be used. Instead, use the Rows collection
    // and the NewSelectedIndex property of the e argument passed to this 
    // event handler.
    GridViewRow row = CustomersGridView.Rows[e.NewSelectedIndex];

    // You can cancel the select operation by using the Cancel
    // property. For this example, if the user selects a customer with 
    // the ID "ANATR", the select operation is canceled and an error message
    // is displayed.
    if (row.Cells[1].Text == "ANATR")
    {
        
      e.Cancel = true;
      Message.Text = "You cannot select " + row.Cells[2].Text + ".";
        
    }
    
  }

</script>
