Default Datagrid - selected item display advice

I'm trying to create a page that has a menu down the left side with one field within the dataset displaying, but clickable. OnClick, I'd like to have items displayed to the right (since one field is a pointer to an image, is it better to response.write or use a label?). I've tried using a datagrid with a dataset, but the buttonColumn doesn't let you dictate the text display from an item in the dataset? And, I can't get it to reflect to the right. I'd apprciate any advice. I'm giving it a shot, but I'm not getting very far.

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data.SqlClient" %>

Sub bindNav()
  dim ds as New Dataset
  Dim da as New SQLDataAdapter
  da = New SqlDataAdapter("sp_eCoursePage", cn) 
  da.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure 
  Dim w_ID as New SqlParameter("@ID",varWid) 
  da.Fill(ds, "pages")
End Sub

Sub chgPage(Sender As Object, E As DataGridCommandEventArgs)
end sub

Sub Page_load(sender as Object, e as EventArgs)
  If Not (IsPostBack)
    if request("pid")="" or request("pid")="0" or request("wid")="" or request("wid")="0" then 
      if request("bkm")="" then varBkm=0 else varBkm=cint(request("bkm"))

Everything's working except the first, last, next, prev buttons that are outside of the datagrid. The labels/buttons that are assigned value/commands respectively based on which row of the datagrid is selected. Then, if the button outside the datagrid is pushed, I want it to go to the correct row of the datagrid and display a hidden cell of the datagrid in a label field. What is the correct syntax for pulling a datagrid's hidden column based on a button click outside of the datagrid? If you look at the code below, the correct row in the datagrid is highlighted when I push the next button, but I can't get the syntax right to have the lblPgTitle display the hidden cell of the datagrid. (datagrid cell specifically is DataField="pgTitle")

sub pgNext(sender as object, e as eventArgs)
    dim n as integer=cint(lblNext.text)
end sub

Many thanks for any help.... Janet

Clarification: I'm using the datagrid like a table of contents, then just want to reflect some non-visible boundColumns when the index changes for a label web control that's not within the datagrid. I don't need to run sql to get and rebind the dataset, since I'm displaying the whole dataset as a table of contents. I'm just trying to figure out the syntax so that when the index changes in the datagrid, I take the first cell and place the text into a label. Can't use datakeys, because the order is set by the data entry person, so next, prev would be screwed up. Really need to use index property?

Tried to switch gears a little, since I'm getting the selected index changed above with the buttons -using the OnSelectedIndexChanged="navNav"

Sub navNav(Sender as object, e as eventArgs)
  Dim itemTitle As TableCell = dgNavList.Items[dgNavList.SelectedIndex].Cells(1)
End Sub

Any other ideas?
