Multiple select button in one gridview

GridView Multiple Select Buttons this is the keyword when i used to searching in Mr. Google and end up with several link to solve this problem. This was my solution to have a multiple select button in one GridView Controller

The ASPX Page

  <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" BackColor="White"
BorderColor="#999999" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="3" ForeColor="Black"
GridLines="Vertical" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="12px" OnRowCommand="ActionCommand">
<asp:BoundField DataField="ID" HeaderText="NO." />
<asp:BoundField DataField="CustomerName" HeaderText="Customer Name" />
<asp:ButtonField CommandName="showName" Text="Show Name" />
<asp:ButtonField CommandName="EditName" Text="EditName" />
<FooterStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" />
<PagerStyle BackColor="#999999" ForeColor="Black" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
<SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#000099" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
<HeaderStyle BackColor="Black" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
<AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" />
</asp:GridView><br />
<asp:Literal ID="LClickName" runat="server"></asp:Literal><br />

The Code Behind

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
private void bindGV()
DataTable table = new DataTable();
table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(string));
table.Columns.Add("CustomerName", typeof(string));
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
DataRow row = table.NewRow();
row["ID"] = i.ToString();
row["CustomerName"] = "customer Name: " + i.ToString();

GridView1.DataSource = table;
protected void ActionCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
string commandName = e.CommandName.ToString().Trim();
GridViewRow row = GridView1.Rows[Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument)];
switch (commandName)
case "showName":
LClickName.Text = "You Clicked Show Name Button : \"" + row.Cells[1].Text + "\"";
case "EditName":
LClickName.Text = "You Clicked Edit Name Button : \"" + row.Cells[1].Text + "\"";
default: break;

Output Example

Quite easy to determine which button is clicked for several select button when using CommandName. Now you actually can have more than one select button in one gridview
