@jORGEM: yes , that's fine but i mean that how i would know that on which rollno. visitor clicked ? or viewing whose details ?


If I understand you correctly, you do understand that you can use a detailsview in combination with a gridview and that the data shown in the detailsview is based on a selection in the gridview.

Ok, if this is the case, using the wizard when adding new controls...

what I have done in the past is add the details view after my gridview is created. When creating the detailsview datasource, going through the SQL steps (Configure the Select Statement Window), I click on the "Where..." button, and in the "Add Where Clause" window, I click on the source dropdown, choose "Control", on the ControlId dropdown, choose my Gridview, finish it by clicking add for "GridView1.SelectedValue".

Make sure my gridview has a "Selected" control so that when I click on it, the details are shown in the detailsview.

This tutorial should get you on the right track.
