Default Getting a GridView Row to highlight

Hi all,

I am trying to get a row to highlight when selected via a linkbutton in a templatefield in a gridview. I've tried lots of different things to make the row highlight, but to no avail. Because I am calling a CommandName which is different to 'Select' (the CommandName I am calling is 'SelectThisRow'; it performs actions on other pieces of code) obviously this won't call the standard, built-in Selected Row functions. Can someone review the following code and just tell me what piece of code I need to make the row highlight?



    <script language="VB" runat="server">
        Sub UpdateDetails(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal Args As CommandEventArgs)
            If Args.CommandName = "SelectThisRow" Then
                'This following line kicks off a process in a user control
            End If
        End Sub
    <asp:AccessDataSource id="BookSource" Runat="Server"
  SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM Books WHERE BookType='Graphics'
                 ORDER BY BookID"/>

<asp:GridView id="BookGrid" DataSourceID="BookSource" Runat="Server"
  Caption="<b>Graphics Books</b>"


   <asp:LinkButton ID="BtnSelectValue" runat="server" OnCommand="UpdateDetails" CommandName="SelectThisRow" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("BookID") %>' />




<gc:UserControl ID="TestRecord" runat="server" />
