How to Set the Focus on the DataGridView Cell

Good Day:

I am using VB.NET 2005 and the DataGridView.  When the user does not enter data in cell 0 and row(i); I would like to set the focus to the cell with the missing data.  The following code does not work:
            DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells(0).Selected = True

My entire code is as follows:
  Private Sub DataGridView1_CellLeave(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellLeave

Dim i As Int32
i = e.RowIndex

        If IsDBNull(DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells(0).Value) Then
            MsgBox("Need Data!")
            DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells(0).Selected = True
             End If
    End Sub

Any Suggestions?

Thank You,
Denise

Try using this

dataGridView1.CurrentCell = dataGridView1[columnIndex, RowIndex];

Hello vs1784:

Thanks for your suggestion.  I added a command button called test and put the code behind it.  It works great, but does not work using the DataGridView events.  I will post a new question about this.

Many Thanks,
Denise
