Hi Venkat,


Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.


We can achieve your requirements by using the following lines in CheckedChanged event as :


CheckBox checkbox = (CheckBox)sender;


and in RowDataBound event we can achieve using RowDataBoundEventArgs  as :


GridRow gr = e.Row;


CheckBox chk = (CheckBox)gr.Cells[0].Controls[0].FindControl("cbRowBtnTemplate");


Please let us know if you have any concerns.

How do I iterate through the grid and find controls from code behind.  I need to access the control in each row, not just the control that fired the event and I am not doing it from RowDataBound.

Hi Owen Waldrep

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Your requirement of finding and accessing control(checkbox) inside RowBtnTemplate in each grid rows can be achieved by iterating through the rows of the Grid. Please refer to the code snippet below to achieve this.


   protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


            foreach (TableRow row in this.ggc1.TopLevelTable.Rows) //Loop through each row of a grid


                GridRow gvr = row as GridRow;

                if (gvr != null)


                    foreach (GridCell gridCell in gvr.Cells)


                        if (gridCell is GridCellTemplated) // If grid cell is templated


                            CheckBox check = (CheckBox)gridCell.FindControl("cbRowBtnTemplate"); //find checkbox control inside templated grid cells

                            if (check != null)


                                if (check.Checked == true)


                                    //process here









Please refer to the below link to download the sample application.


Please let me know if you have any concern.
