Navigating a DataGridView bound to a Dataset

Hi,

I am writing a program to take an attendance register and have a datagridview control which is bound to a dataset:

DataGridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables("attendance_marks")

When i click a button e.g. "Present", i have set the action to change the value of a field to "present", but then i want it to automatically move to the next record. It would make it much quicker for users however i can't figure out how to do this.

With VB6 it was just the case of calling the .MoveNext function but that does not exist now as far as i can see.

Thanks
Adam

Try this:

 Me.BindingContext(dataset, "datatable").Position += 1

Hi,

Ive tried that and it doesn't work. The datagridview just stays in the same line and if i click the button again, it just changes the same entry.
