Gridview - is individual cell click event possible?

P: n/a
K B
I would like to create a gridview as below:

Project Name 1-1 1-2 1-3 1-4 1-5 1-6
Project 1 BLUE BLUE BLUE BLUE GREEN GREEN
more projects

I would like to fill the cell with a solid color based on the value of
the cell (e.g., documents that are complete (blue) or not complete
(green). In effect have a solid bar indicator going across each row. I
know how to color the cell based on the value, but not the click part.

Is there any way to do this so that I can then get row/cell information
based on the CELL clicked? I will need to retrieve the column title and
value of the cell as well as the first column value.

Any direction GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,
Kit

You can do it easily with a bit of javascripting.

Make 3 hidden fields:
<input runat=server type=hidden id=inhAction />
<input runat=server type=hidden id=inhRow />
<input runat=server type=hidden id=inhColumn />

and a javascript function:
function cellClicked(row, column){
myForm.inhAction.value = "CELLCLICKED";
myForm.inhRow.value = row;
myForm.inhColumn.value = column;
myForm.submit();
}

and in the gridview's RowDataBound event setup the javascript call for every
cell:
myCell.Attributes["onclick"]=String.Format("cellClicked({0},{1})",
myCellRow, myCellColumn);

When you click a cell, you will get a postback. You can tell taht the
postback is caused by a cell click by looking in the inhAction and you can
get the row and the column numbers from the inhRow and inhColumn.
