How do I move to a certain row in a datagridview table?

Does anyone know of a way to automatically select a certain row in a datagrid? I have a table with my collection of vintage recordings on and it would be handy for my program to scroll down the table to the last played file and select the relevant row. I have been messing about trying to code something for an hour and I can make the selected row selected, but the control doesn't scroll down (the selected row is hidden off screen and I have to manually scroll down).

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's an HTML/web browser problem.  When you select the row all you've done is set a memory flag so you know what's selected and written a slightly different style for the HTML of the relevant row.  But it's still just html and your browser won't scroll down for you.  The only thing you might be able to do is include an anchor and redirect your page to the appropriate # url.

I have yet to play with VB 2008, but in 2005, you put something like this in the ASPX page:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="cprReport.aspx.cs" Inherits="cprReport" MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback="true"  %>

Note the maintainScrollPositionOnPostback = true.

good luck :)
