Mimicking a datagrid click

Hello  experts:

I have a tab (tab2) with a datagrid that shows all fields for all records from table1 on the bottom of the screen. When users click on an individual row on the datagrid,a dataview displays all individual fields for that whichever record the user clicks on the datagrid. The 1st time around the dataview displays the 1st datagrid record.

Is there a way to select a specific row without the user having to click on the datagrid first.?

I have a situation where I'm coming to this tab (tab2) from another tab (tab1)with a specific record in mind and would like to open the dataview on tab2 with the indivdual fields for that  specific record without having to click on a datagrid first.

Is there an easy way to do this

I tried this:

datagrid.DataSource = dataview
datagrid.CurrentRowIndex()= 2

but this only displays the 2nd row on the datagrid. How can I inquiry on the datagrid to chose the specific record?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
