Write the code on the DataGrid1 Click Event :

    Private Sub DataGrid1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.Click

        Dim picnt As Integer

        picnt = DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex

        With DataGrid1
            .Select(picnt)
        End With

    End Sub

In the CurrentCellChanged event add

datagrid1.Select(datagrid1.CurrentRowIndex)

You need to be careful with the DataGrid click event as a datagrid is made up of columns such as Textbox and Checkbox and these controls will capture the click event, not the datagrid itself.

With regards multiple rows, there is no collection of SelectedRows like we have within a listview or listbox. To overcome this I created my own datagrid that held its own collection of RowsSelected that I could access.

If you don't want to do this then this code should work, just be aware it loops through all the rows within the grid  :(

dim i as integer
for i = 0 to datagrid1.rows.count -1
    if datagrid1.isselected(i) = true then
        ' do something for the selected row
    end if
next


With regards the other issue of highlighting then I have never been able to resolve it, but as the users have never complained I put it to the bottom of my to do list !
