    Try the below codes. Hopefully, It will answer your question.

    <asp:Content ID="BodyContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function toggleColumn(link)
            var div = $(link).siblings('.countDiv');
    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" AutoGenerateColumns="false" runat="server">
            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="# Openings"> 
        <a style="cursor:pointer;" onclick="toggleColumn(this)"><%# Eval("Count") %></a>      
        <div class="countDiv">
            Total Count: 20

    Default.aspx.cs file:

      namespace aspnetWeb
        public partial class _Default : Page
            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                List<Student> list = new List<Student>();
                for(int i=1;i<=10;i++)
                list.Add(new Student { ID = 1, Count = 20 });
                GridView1.DataSource = list.AsQueryable();
        public class Student
            public int ID { get; set; }
            public int Count { get; set; }
