Hi experts,

I have Gridview and Formview.
When I select Gridview Row, it displays its Formview.
Here I have 10 rows in Gridview. Until I select any row of Gridview, Formview doesn't display.
I want to select first row as default when I enter this screen. How can I do it?

Something similiar to the following would work.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        GridView1.SelectedIndex = 1
    End Sub

Open in new window

Or rather, Gridview1.SelectedIndex = 0 for the first row.
