<script type="text/javascript">
    function ShareOnWhatsApp(id, name, country) {'whatsapp://send?text=Reg No.: ' + id + ',Name: ' + name + ',Country: ' + country + '');
        return false;


protected int selectedIndex = 0;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!this.IsPostBack)
        System.Data.DataTable dt = new System.Data.DataTable();
        dt.Columns.AddRange(new System.Data.DataColumn[3] { 
                new System.Data.DataColumn("Id", typeof(int)),
                new System.Data.DataColumn("Name", typeof(string)),
                new System.Data.DataColumn("Country",typeof(string)) });
        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;

protected void OnSelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    selectedIndex = GridView1.SelectedIndex;

protected void lnkShare_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    GridViewRow row = this.GridView1.Rows[selectedIndex];
    string id = row.Cells[0].Text;
    string name = row.Cells[1].Text;
    string country = row.Cells[2].Text;
    string script = "window.onload = function() { ShareOnWhatsApp('" + id + "','" + name + "','" + country + "'); };";
    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "script", script, true);


Protected selectedIndex As Integer = 0
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If Not Me.IsPostBack Then
        Dim dt As System.Data.DataTable = New System.Data.DataTable()
        dt.Columns.AddRange(New System.Data.DataColumn(2) {New System.Data.DataColumn("Id", GetType(Integer)), New System.Data.DataColumn("Name", GetType(String)), New System.Data.DataColumn("Country", GetType(String))})
        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
    End If
End Sub

Protected Sub OnSelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    selectedIndex = GridView1.SelectedIndex
End Sub

Protected Sub lnkShare_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim row As GridViewRow = Me.GridView1.Rows(selectedIndex)
    Dim id As String = row.Cells(0).Text
    Dim name As String = row.Cells(1).Text
    Dim country As String = row.Cells(2).Text
    Dim script As String = "window.onload = function() { ShareOnWhatsApp('" & id & "','" & name & "','" & country & "'); };"
    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.[GetType](), "script", script, True)
