Hiding a datagrid with Javascript, coding for onmouseover in a datagrid

Put very simply, the DataGridItem = <TR>
So a simple
foreach (DataGridItem Item in DataGrid1.Items)
Item.Attributes.Add(“onmouseover”, “alert(‘”+Item.Cells[0].Text+”’);”);

Will show an alert with the value in the first cell when you move your mouse over the row. A very simple example!
But the concept can be used for much more complicated requirements liking changing background colours or ‘binding’ textboxes outside the grid to values inside it.
The hiding involves nothing but wrapping the grid an <a> tag and setting it’s style.
