Tags: c#,asp.net,css,gridview

Problem :

So i got this gridview on ASP.NET, it is about a gmail client, i made a template field with a check box that is for select several message at the same time, but first when you select a message i want to change the row background color, I already have my CSS but i dont know how to trigger the action or how to know what row was selected in the code. Here is the template of my grid:

 <asp:GridView ID="inboxGrid" runat="server" 
        AutoGenerateColumns="false" CssClass="inbox" ShowHeader="false" BorderStyle="None" GridLines="None">
                <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSelect" runat="server" />
                <ItemStyle Width="24" CssClass="check"/>
                <ItemStyle CssClass="from" />
                <asp:Label ID="lblFrom" runat="server" 
                    Text = '<%# Eval("From") %>' />
                <ItemStyle CssClass="subject" />
                <asp:Label ID="lblSubject" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Subject") %>' />
                <ItemStyle CssClass="date" />
                <asp:Label ID="lblFecha" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Fecha") %>' />
        <RowStyle CssClass="inbox"/>

Solution :

Here is a solution using JQuery

Provided you add a CssClass named chk to asp:checkbox

<asp:CheckBox ID="chkSelect" runat="server" CssClass="chk" />

Here is the script

$(document).ready(function () {
        $(".chk :checkbox").live("click", function () {
            $(this).closest("tr").css("background-color", this.checked ? "#0000FF" : "");
