Suppose I have a datagridview with hundreds of row.
How can I programatically select a cell (that is out of the display region) and make it visible and center it in the display region?

Thanks.
This is a windows form develop using VS2005.
The datagridview is bounded and let say it has hundreds of record.
The screen can only show the first 20 initially.
After a search operation, I wanted to display a record that is not in the first 20 (let say the record found is the 100th).
I want to be able to "move" this 100th record to the center of the screen and be visible to the user.

How about setting FirstDisplayedCell?

From docs:

The following code example illustrates how to ensure that the current cell is visible after sorting. This code works only with an unbound DataGridView control. With a DataGridView control bound to an external data source, the current cell is not automatically persisted when sorting.

To run this example, paste the following code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1. In C#, you must also connect the Sorted event to the event handler.

Visual Basic  Copy Code
Private Sub dataGridView1_Sorted(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles dataGridView1.Sorted

    Me.dataGridView1.FirstDisplayedCell = Me.dataGridView1.CurrentCell

End Sub

 
C#  Copy Code
private void dataGridView1_Sorted(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.dataGridView1.FirstDisplayedCell = this.dataGridView1.CurrentCell;
}

hi

try this:


foreach(DataGridItem item in yourDataGrid.Items)  
{
       //Search for your record
       //if(this is the record)
       // {
       //            do somthing (you can use item.Cells[row index] to see info
       //             at specified cell)
       //}
}
