In this Article you can learn how to get the values of selected row from a Gridview and display the values in textBoxes using C# code.

Selecting a Row in Gridview

Add one Gridview and bind a Data using SqlDataSource.and Add three Textboxes to display a data in Textboxes when the GridviewRow is Selected.

Ste the Gridview AutoGenerateColumns property to 'False'.

You will need to set the Bound column in order to see the text in the cells of the grid view control

<asp:GridView runat ="Server" ID="Gridview1" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"AutoGenerateSelectButton="True" OnSelectedIndexChanged="Gridview1_SelectedIndexChanged Width="306px" Height="137px">
    <Columns >
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="Rowid"  DataField ="Rowid" />
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="Name" DataField ="Name" />
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="Marks" DataField ="marks" />  
    </Columns>
</asp:GridView>
 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:shakeerConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [emp]">
</asp:SqlDataSource
>

In Gridview Properties set 'AutoGenerateSelectButton=True'.See below image of Gridview after setting 'AutoGenerateSelectButton=True'.

See the Desing view of your Gridview.you will find a Hyperlink with a text as 'Select'

Selecting Row:

Selecting row event is fired when you make a click on the select link. If you need any particular item in that row you can easily select it using the cells property:
In Gridview Events double Click on SelectedIndexChanged Event and write the below code:

    protected void Gridview1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        txtrowid.Text = Gridview1.SelectedRow.Cells[1].Text;
        txtname.Text = Gridview1.SelectedRow.Cells[2].Text;
        txtmarks.Text = Gridview1.SelectedRow.Cells[3].Text;

    }
