Book Review: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Quickstart Cookbook
I had a review copy of Jose Luis Latorre Millas's Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Quickstart Cookbook. This book was given to me by Packt Publishing few months ago but didn't got a chance during that time to give an insight about the book.

Thankfully, I did find some time few days ago to finally give this a read and publishing ......

I wrote a blog post a while back before here that demonstrate how to highlight a GridView row on mouseover and as you can see its very easy to highlight rows in GridView.
