DataGrid SelectedIndex

I have an application which makes use of a datagrid.  My problem is that if a row in the datagrid is selected, and I then programmatically select a row, I end up with 2 rows selected.  If I continue selecting other rows programmatically, they get selected, but the other rows do not deselect.  I was under the impression that there was a property called SelectedIndex that I could set to -1 to clear my row selections....but I cannot find that property anywhere for a datagrid within Visual Studio.  The object browser does not even see it within the datagrid class.  How can I accomplish this???????????  Basically to only allow one row selection at a time, whether it be UI selection or programmatically???????????

Thanks,
Kendal

Hi, try using: the CurrentRowIndex property:

this.dataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex = <index here>;

if your already using that and its still selecting more than one row, try the following:

this.dataGrid1.UnSelect(this.dataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex); //Unselect the currently selected row
this.dataGrid1.Select(<new index>); //Select the new one

Sorry, just noticed you mentioned multiple rows maybe selected, in that case you could iterate through the rows and deselect each one before selecting the new, you can use the following method (subtitute dataGrid1 with your datagrids name):

private void SelectSingleRow(int index)
{
      int rowCount = ((CurrencyManager) this.dataGrid1.BindingContext[this.dataGrid1.DataSource, this.dataGrid1.DataMember]).Count;

      for (int i = 0; i < rowCount; i++)
      {
             if (this.dataGrid1.IsSelected(i))
                   this.dataGrid1.UnSelect(i);
      }

      this.dataGrid1.Select(index);
      this.dataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex = index;
}
