Typically we will attach the mouseover and mouseout client-side events on the gridview rows to highlight rows on mouseover, but there are cases that we don't want to make the row highlighted when we are on edit mode. To do this we can check the GridView EditIndex to determine if the row is on edit mode and then do the validation there. Here's a sample code block below of what I am talking about:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) {
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow) {
                string onmouseoverStyle = "'blue'; ='white';";
                string onmouseoutStyle = "'white'; ='black';";

                if (GridView1.EditIndex != -1) {
                else {
                    e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", onmouseoverStyle);
                    e.Row.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", onmouseoutStyle);

As you can see the code above is very straight forward. What it does is it checks if the gridview is on edit mode and when it's on edit mode we removed the onmouseover attribute and when it's not we attach the onmouseover attribute again and apply the desired styles. That's simple!

I hope someone find this post useful!
