Help! Find row on which a button was pressed in the gridview control in .NET 2.0

How do you get the exact row (and column data from that row)  on which a button was pressed within a gridview.

In .NET v1 using the datagrid control the following
construction was available:
using the datagrid DataGridCommandEventArgs parameter.

choices in gridview are

    Sub cmdBackTestSummary(ByVal objSender As Object, ByVal objArgs As GridViewCommandEventArgs)
 ' objArgs.commandname
 ' objargs.commandarguement
 ' objargs.commandsource
    End Sub

but no objArgs.Item.Cells(n)

So how do you get the exact row (and column data from that row)  on which a button was pressed within a gridview?

Something similar to the following (in C# since I'm less familiar with VB):

if (e.CommandName == "some-command-name")


GridView gv = e.CommandSource as GridView;

int ind = Int32.Parse(e.CommandArgument.ToString());

// something similar to following... you may also use FindControl() if using template columns with ID assigned to controls

Button btn = gv.Rows[ind].Cells[3].Controls[0] as Button;

string text = btn.Text;

Values returned as follows:

objArgs.CommandName = cmdFeb
objArgs.CommandArgument.tostring =
objArgs.CommandSource = System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button

I can get the column as the command name tells me which column, I expected to get some info from the command argument, but this appears to be empty.

Differences between .net 1, .net 1.1, .net 2.0 and .net 3.0 #2
Hi, This seems to be a common question, but i havent got an answer yet:(Can, any one please explain me the differences between these versions.If you keep your feet firmly on the ground, you'll have trouble putting on your pants! There are too many differences for one email - - from 1.0 to 1.1 (not a whole lot of real change, other than fixes, at least compared to 1.1 to 2.0) With 2.0, there were many new declarative controls, with many new ideas added in With 3.0, it's a superset of 2.0 - instead of replacing the installation completely, it just 'added on' new functionality - I would...

.Net 2
Hi Friends, I want to show Different Tabs for different information on my web form ( .aspx page ). I could not found Tab Control with .net 2005. I know there is some but couldnt find it. Can you please tell me from where can I add Tab Control to my web form ? Thanks in advance, Nirav With some tedious settings of properties on the menu control, it will behave like a tab control.  Then you need to use a multiview control and fill it with views.  Then you need to wire up the menu to the multiview or something.  I tried this before and it works, but we wrote our own contro...

Running server controls compiled for .NET 1.1 in .NET 2.0
Hello, I have tried upgrading our ASP.NET 1.1 application to .NET 2.0 by using Web Application Projects, and it works beautifully. We use several 3rd party controls that we bought for use in .NET 1.1 and these seem to just work in .NET 2.0, except that I get an intermittent problem with one of them. Should DLLs compiled using .NET 1.1 simply work, except if they access classes that have been removed from the framework in .NET 2.0? If I have both .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 present on the machine and the ASP.NET application is configured to run using .NET 2.0 and I have a DLL compiled using .NE...

The one that works is simply that...the one that doesn't has the Button.Text defined as something e...

Button image for each top level menu item
For the subpage items I am just going to use background images/styles, but for the top level menu items, I have a button for each one. Just to complicate matters I have a rollover image for each, so when the user's mouse hovers over a given menu item, the button swaps out so they see a different color. Can I do images for the top level menu items? Are rollovers possible as well? How? Appreciate any input. I'm still trying to figure this one out. Has anyone used buttons for their top level menu items? If you could copy the info from your web.sitemap + the css file that would be most help...

Unable to access page controls from base class in .NET 2.0 Beta 2
Hello All, I have converted a large-ish project to VS2005 beta 2. It is going better than beta 1, but it's still a world of pain. The latest problem is that I can't seem to access page controls from within a base class. I'm sure I didn't get this on beta 1 so maybe something has changed. Or maybe I'm just tired and it'll seem obvious tomorrow (it's the end of the working day here in the UK). Anyway, my problem: I have a page, Administration.aspx, a code behind file Administration.aspx.cs (with an Administration class), and, in a seperate project, a class called AdminPage. ...
