    I have set <ClientEvents OnRowClick="RowClick" /> to fire when a row is clicked.  I have a Server-side checkbox on the row that I would like to exclude from this javascript event.  Does anyone know if there is a way to do this and how?

    Basically, I am trying to have a checkbox on the Grid row that when checked doesn't fire a server-side or client-side event.  When I click on a button on the page, I'd like to cycle through the grid and get the items with a checkmark.

    Hi Richard,

    The RowClick event is not fired when you click on a control within a table cell in the grid. Am I missing something. Could you paste your aspx and code behind?

    Hi Jesse,

    You can check the content of the currently clicked cell in the OnRowSelecting event of the Grid and disable the click if the cell contains an input:

    For example, you can have a similar logic:
    function onRowSelecting(sender, args) {
        var e = args.get_domEvent();
        var targetElement = e.srcElement || e.target || event.target;
        var input = targetElement.children[0];
        if (input && input.id.lastIndexOf("ClientSelectColumnSelectCheckBox") > 0) {
