Get GridViewRow's Index on button click

Below is a sample how to catch the rowindex of a gridview on button click located in a template column.

Here's the gridview:


<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server">
<Columns>
<asp:TemplateField>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click" Text="Button" />
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
</Columns>
</asp:GridView>
Code Behind:


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if (!IsPostBack)
{
LoadData();
}
}
private void LoadData()
{
GridView1.DataSource=UsersAccess.Instance.SelectTable();
GridView1.DataBind();
}
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
GridViewRow row=((Button)sender).Parent.Parent as GridViewRow;
//Now I have the rowIndex
//I can : GridView1.Rows[row].FindControl("");
Response.Write(row.RowIndex);
}

Would be better for maintainability to use .NamingContainer instead of .Parent.Parent
