Use JQuery to Delete from Gridview


try this example to JQuery to Delete from Gridview

Step1 :- Go to JQuery site and Download jquery-1.4.min.js from here

Step2 :- Create a new website and add new web page and Web.Config file

Step3 :- in Web page add Gridview and use SQLDataSource control to bind in it

Note : in this example i’m using Northwind Database

So the web page will be :

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>GridView and JQuery</title>
    <script src="Script/jquery-1.4.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
     <script type="text/javascript">
         $(document).ready(function() {
             $("#.delbutton").click(function() {
                 //Get the Id of the record to delete
                 var record_id = $(this).attr("id");
                 //Get the GridView Row reference
                 var tr_id = $(this).parents("#.record");
                 // Ask user's confirmation before delete records
                 if (confirm("Do you want to delete this record?")) {
                         type: "POST",
                         //GridViewDelete.aspx is the page name and DeleteUser is the server side method to delete records in GridViewDelete.aspx.cs
                         url: "Default.aspx/DeleteCategory",
                         //Pass the selected record id
                         data: "{'args': '" + record_id + "'}",
                         contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                         dataType: "json",
                         success: function() {
                             // Change the back color of the Row before deleting
                             tr_id.css("background-color", "lightgreen");
                             // Do some animation effect
                             tr_id.fadeOut(500, function() {
                                 //Remove GridView row
                 return false;
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
            CellPadding="4" DataKeyNames="CategoryID" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
            <RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="CategoryID" HeaderText="CategoryID"
                    InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="CategoryID" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="CategoryName" HeaderText="CategoryName"
                    SortExpression="CategoryName" />
                     <a href="#" id='<%# Eval("CategoryID") %>'> <img  border="0" src="Images/delete.jpg" alt="Delete" /></a>
            <FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <PagerStyle BackColor="#2461BF" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
            <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#D1DDF1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
            <HeaderStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <EditRowStyle BackColor="#2461BF" />
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
            ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:NorthwindConnectionString %>"
            SelectCommand="SELECT [CategoryID], [CategoryName] FROM [Categories]">


Step4 :- in code behind add the following code

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

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


    public static void DeleteCategory(string args)
        string conString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["NorthwindConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
        SqlConnection sqlConn = new SqlConnection(conString);
            SqlCommand sqlCmd = new SqlCommand("Delete from Categories where CategoryID = @CategoryID", sqlConn);
            sqlCmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
            sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@CategoryID", Convert.ToInt32(args.Trim()));
            //Handle Error

Step5 :- in Web.Config file add the connection String

    <add name="NorthwindConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

Hope this helps

Good Luck.
