Thanks for your help. One problem; however, is that after the row has been selected and I check the "grid.SelectedIndex" it has a value of -1 and not the index of the row that was selected on the grid. What do you recommend?

Add this code in Page_load event

Dim MyStringBuilder As New System.Text.StringBuilder

    MyStringBuilder.Append("var oldgridSelectedColor;")
    MyStringBuilder.Append("  function setMouseOverColor(element){")
    MyStringBuilder.Append("     oldgridSelectedColor =;")
    MyStringBuilder.Append("  function setMouseOutColor(element){")

    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, "EnterHandler", MyStringBuilder.ToString)


Add this code in the GridView1_RowDataBound event

 If (e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow) Then
      e.Row.Attributes("onmouseover") = "javascript:setMouseOverColor(this);"
      e.Row.Attributes("onmouseout") = "javascript:setMouseOutColor(this);"
