Change row color in Gridview on mouse over

If you have the need to change the row color of a row in a gridview when you mouse over (and mouse out) you can add some code to the RowDataBound event.

Here is a sample:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

//Only apply to data rows
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)

//Add mouse over event to change row background color
e.Row.Attributes.Add(“onmouseover”, “’Yellow'”);

//Add mouse out event to change row background color back to white
e.Row.Attributes.Add(“onmouseout”, “”);



Here is the blog site where I found this sample.
