In this article I will explain with an example, how to pass multiple Eval (DataBinder.Eval) values as parameter to JavaScript function in ASP.Net using C# and VB.Net.
The multiple Eval (DataBinder.Eval) values from database are passed to a JavaScript function as parameters when Button is clicked inside GridView control.
 
 
HTML Markup
The following HTML Markup consists of an ASP.Net GridView with three BoundField columns and a Button. The Button has been assigned an OnClientClick event handler which makes call to the ViewDetails JavaScript function.
The multiple Eval (DataBinder.Eval) values are passed as parameters to the ViewDetails JavaScript function using string.Format function. The string parameter values are passed within double quotes.
The ViewDetails JavaScript function displays the parameter values using JavaScript alert message box.
Note: The syntax for escaping double quote character is different for C# and VB.Net languages.

C#
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
    <Columns>
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Id" HeaderText="Customer Id" ItemStyle-Width="90" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" ItemStyle-Width="120" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Country" HeaderText="Country" ItemStyle-Width="100" />
        <asp:TemplateField>
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:Button Text="View" runat="server" OnClientClick='<%# string.Format("return ViewDetails({0}, \"{1}\", \"{2}\");", Eval("Id"), Eval("Name"), Eval("Country")) %>' />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateField>
    </Columns>
</asp:GridView>
<script type="text/javascript">
    function ViewDetails(customerId, name, country) {
        var message = "CustomerId: " + customerId;
        message += "\nName: " + name;
        message += "\nCountry: " + country;
        alert(message);
        return false;
    }
</script>
 
VB.Net
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
    <Columns>
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Id" HeaderText="Customer Id" ItemStyle-Width="90" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" ItemStyle-Width="120" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Country" HeaderText="Country" ItemStyle-Width="100" />
        <asp:TemplateField>
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:Button Text="View" runat="server" OnClientClick='<%# String.Format("return ViewDetails({0}, ""{1}"", ""{2}"");", Eval("Id"), Eval("Name"), Eval("Country")) %>' />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateField>
    </Columns>
</asp:GridView>
<script type="text/javascript">
    function ViewDetails(customerId, name, country) {
        var message = "CustomerId: " + customerId;
        message += "\nName: " + name;
        message += "\nCountry: " + country;
        alert(message);
        return false;
    }
</script>
 
 
Namespaces
You will need to import the following namespace.

C#
using System.Data;
 
VB.Net
Imports System.Data
 
 
Binding the ASP.Net GridView control
The GridView is populated with a dynamic DataTable with some dummy data inside the Page Load event.
Note: You can learn more about this dynamic DataTable in my article Create DataTable dynamically and bind to GridView in ASP.Net.
 
C#
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (!this.IsPostBack)
    {
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        dt.Columns.AddRange(new DataColumn[3] { new DataColumn("Id"), new DataColumn("Name"), new DataColumn("Country") });
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "John Hammond", "United States");
        dt.Rows.Add(2, "Mudassar Khan", "India");
        dt.Rows.Add(3, "Suzanne Mathews", "France");
        dt.Rows.Add(4, "Robert Schidner", "Russia");
        GridView1.DataSource = dt;
        GridView1.DataBind();
    }
}
 
VB.Net
Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    If Not Me.IsPostBack Then
        Dim dt As New DataTable()
        dt.Columns.AddRange(New DataColumn(2) {New DataColumn("Id"), New DataColumn("Name"), New DataColumn("Country")})
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "John Hammond", "United States")
        dt.Rows.Add(2, "Mudassar Khan", "India")
        dt.Rows.Add(3, "Suzanne Mathews", "France")
        dt.Rows.Add(4, "Robert Schidner", "Russia")
        GridView1.DataSource = dt
        GridView1.DataBind()
    End If
End Sub
