Selecting records in GRIDVIEW without SELECT button ??

Hi , i was wondering, how to make the SELECT link button that comes along with the GRIDVIEW when we enable SELECTION , disappear and make the records selectable ?, so that insted of CLICKING on the SELECT button for selecting the records , i could directly select the records !.

Now i get somthing like this.. for selection..

Col 1   COL2
Select name
Select Age
Select salary

What i want is..this for selection...


Thanks in advance !

Convert your data column to a template field. Replace the label with a LinkButton, bind the text and set the commandname of the button to Select.

If you want to use a radio button to do the select in a GridView you may use the following code (updated for correct display):

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

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<script runat="server">
    protected string IsChecked(Object key)
        if (YourGridView.SelectedDataKey != null)
            if (key.Equals(YourGridView.SelectedDataKey.Value))
                return "checked";
        return "";

    protected void YourGridView_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)


<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:GridView runat="server" DataKeyNames="YourId" DataSourceID="YourDataSource"
            ID="YourGridView" OnSelectedIndexChanged="YourGridView_SelectedIndexChanged">
                        <asp:LinkButton ID="SelectLinkButton" runat="server" CausesValidation="False" CommandName="Select">
                        <input name="SelectGroup" type="radio"
                                <%# IsChecked(Eval("YourId")) %>
                                onclick="eval(this.parentNode.href)" ></asp:LinkButton>

The code above should fix radio display problems. In the above code I use the javascript postback method of the parent element which is a Select LinkButton to postback the selected index changing event. I also use some inline code to emit the cheched or nothing attribute for input element by comparing the Id of the current row against the id of the selected row. In order for that to be sucesfull the GridView needs to databind everytime we change the selected index.

It looks like this tutorial may help:

 Now if instead of using the "Select" button you can make the "Id" field a template as follows:

                        <asp:LinkButton ID="SelectLinkButton" runat="server" CausesValidation="False" CommandName="Select" Text='<%# Eval("Id")>' / >

That is what I am telling you in my previous message. I though you wanted to select a record by pressing on the Id field in the GridView. You can achieve that by making the field a template and converting the field to a link button with "Select" as CommandName. Good luck.
