Datagrid Row Row/cell selection

I have a data grid that is displaying the results of a query to a database.  It has 4 columns (say appID, FAQID, FAQ, Source).

I have created the FAQ column as a TemplateColumn and set it as a LinkButton as I want a new page of the application to load when a user clicks on the FAQ.
The new page is to display to complete solution to the FAQ. Is there any way that I can retrieve the value from the FAQID column that relates to the clicked FAQ so that I can pass this to the new usercontrol?

You could certainly do this. Since you have the FAQID in the one of the cells of the DG, you could assign an event handler to the OnItemCommand event handler in the design view of the DG and then define the code needed to accomplish what you are trying to in the code behind.

To access the DG cells and its values, u cud write code somehting like below

protected void GetFAQID(object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)
e.Items.Cells[index value of the cell in which you have the FAQID];

By accessing the cell values u could get to the values in it and then do what u are trying to accomplish.

Thanks for the help hth.

I've just got a few questions:
How do you access the OnItemCommand event handler?
If I double-click on the DataGrid in design mode the event is:

private void faqResults_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

An there is nothing in the properites that states OnItemCommand.
I tried coding myself and this is what I've come up with but I'm not sure if its right. Here is a few snippets of the code:

protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGrid faqResults;
private void InitializeComponent()
this.faqResults.ItemCommand += new System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridCommandEventHandler(this.getFAQID);
this.faqResults.SelectedIndexChanged += new System.EventHandler(this.faqResults_SelectedIndexChanged);
this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);

protected void getFAQID(object sender, DataGridCommandEventArgs e)
Response.Write("Test: " + e.Item.Cells[1]);

Can you see any problems with this?

It may also help if I give you my code from html view:

<asp:DataGrid id="faqResults" style="MARGIN-BOTTOM: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 3px"

I know this is going on a bit but I'm having another problem.  The way I'm designing my application is that I'm using user-controls.

I have a main page - "WebForm.aspx", which is split into 2. The left side holds a serachPage.ascx that constantly remains in the WebForm. However the right hand side changes according to the users interaction.
Therefore, the reason I'm having a problem is becuause when the user clicks on the link in the datagrid I want a new usercontrol to load. I need some sort of event to fire so that I can send the FAQID (talked about in my first post) to a new usercontrol (solution.ascx) that is to load.
Any ideas?

Yes I tried it but it doesn't work.  I am using user controls and I think I'm having problems passing the data between user controls.  Somebody mentioned it may be because I have to recreate dynmaically added user controls after postbacks?

Does that sound familiar to you?

How to delete Datagrid row if that row is not selected
Hi, I faced a problem. I have a simple datagrid. It allows user to select a particular row of data say row 5.
