retrieve a row in a table

I have generated a table dynamically of 4 columns of which the first is a checkbox. Now I want to retrieve a row (remanining 3 elements) based on the checkbox selection. How can I do it?

Thinking out loud:
You could try placing value in the hidden field with an iterated number in the end. For example:
<input type="hidden" name="firstrow<%=i%> value="test">
Then upon clicking the choosing the checkbox, add a snipet of code that retrieves the same value of iterated number of the hidden field with that of the checkbox.
Hope that makes sense.
