How to delete row of Gridview using Link button in ASP.NET C#

Good morning friends, I have covered many article on Gridview binding. Today i am talking about Gridview with link button.In this article we will do something different like delete row when we press the delete link button. To do this task, first to design the Gridview with link button after that perform some operation on link button.

Source Code:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default3.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default3" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
function ConfirmationBox(countryname) {

var finalresult = confirm('Are you sure you want to delete' + countryname + 'details');
if (finalresult) {
return true;

else {
return false;

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataKeyNames="CountryId" OnRowDataBound="GridView1_RowDataBound">
<asp:BoundField DataField="CountryId" HeaderText="Country Id" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="CountryName" HeaderText="Country Name" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="delete">

<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" OnClick="LinkButton1_Click">Delete Country</asp:LinkButton>



In the above mentioned code we have a script block which is used for giving confirmation message  when we click on link button. Also we have a Gridview with three column , first two starting columns bind with the country table, in the  third column we have a delete link button.

CodeBehind Code

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

public partial class Default3 : System.Web.UI.Page
    SqlConnection con;
    SqlCommand cmd;
    DataSet ds;

    public Default3()
        con = new SqlConnection();
        con.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ToString();
        cmd = new SqlCommand();
        ds = new DataSet();
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    private void bindgridview()
        cmd.CommandText = "select * from [country]";
        cmd.Connection = con;
        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
        GridView1.DataSource = ds;

    protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
            string countryname = Convert.ToString(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "CountryName"));
            LinkButton lnkbutton = (LinkButton)e.Row.FindControl("LinkButton1");
            lnkbutton.Attributes.Add("onclick", "JavaScript:return ConfirmationBox('" + countryname + "')");


    protected void LinkButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        LinkButton lnk = sender as LinkButton;
        GridViewRow gridrow = lnk.NamingContainer as GridViewRow;
        int countryid = Convert.ToInt32(GridView1.DataKeys[gridrow.RowIndex].Value.ToString());
        cmd.CommandText = "delete from [country] where CountryId=" + countryid;
        cmd.Connection = con;
        int a = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
Output of the following mentioned code

How to delete row of Gridview using Link button in ASP.NET C#

 In the above mentioned code, first to bind the gridview with the DataSet. By the RowDataBound event we have to generate confirmation message using java script. So first of all get the country name by the eval method. Also get the link button from Gridview using findControl( ) method. Now you can call javaScript method on LinkButton

By the help of link button event handler we are deleting the row from the Gridview which is mentioned in the code. So first of all get the countryid from the binded gridview then execute delete statement.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
