    In the client API online documentation here, it is said the parameters for OnRowClick are :

    gridDataItem - tablerow instance

    domEvent - dom event

    But, using Firebug, I get this that the sender is a RadGrid object, not a gridDataItem object.
    sender = Object_element=div#ctl15_rgrdMembers.RadGrid 

    Using the following function for example validates that the sender in not the row...
    function RowClick(sender, eventArgs)  

    When trying to access sender.get_element().attributes, I do not get the <tr> attributes but the RadGrid's <div> attributes.

    Am I missing something? Do I read the documention wrong ? I need to access a custom attribute in the <tr>. How can I do it ?

    Hello Dominic,

    Let me give a short explanation:
    function RowClick(sender, eventArgs) 

    Arguments eventArgs (event arguments)

    Argument 1: gridDataItem

    Argument 2: domEvent

    Regarding your question:
    var row = eventArgs.get_domEvent().target.parentNode; 

    I hope this helps.

    That explains it. Thanks a lot

    So, "sender" is always the RadGrid and most often than not unused?

    I did not find that subtlety in the documentation, I imagine this is a global concept for all RadControls Client API. I'll know for the next time...
