I am binding data to a datagrid using windows forms. I want to make sure that the user selects one record out of the displayed data in datagrid, otherwise i should throw a validation error saying one record should be selected on submit button event. Also i want to grab the record value the user in the datagrid in my code.

Dim count As Integer
For row As Integer = 0 To table.Rows.Count - 1
  If dataGrid1.IsSelected(row) Then
     count +=1
  End If
Next row
