HI, I'm using VB 2005, WinForms. I have a DataGridView in which I highlight the selected row as follows:

myDGV.RowsDefaultCellStyle.SelectionBackColor = Color.LightSeaGreen

How do I programatically move the selected row from one row to the next? Lets say my selected row is row of index 10. How do I move the selection forward to row 13 or back to row 7?

Thanks,
Fulano

datagrid views allow for multiple rows to be selected (if select multi is true)
To set any specific row as selected:

myDGV.Rows(index).selected = true

Hi lludden, yes indeed you suggestion is correct. However, it leads me to a followup question, which I now see happening. If the selected row is outside the viewable area (way down at the bottom of the list) in the DGV, how do you make the DGV scroll up to the top of the viewable area -- or at least within the viewable area using your code?

Thanks,
Fulano

Hi Fulano,
You can do this
Dim rowIndex As Integer = 1
Me.DataGridView1.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridView1.Rows(rowIndex ).Cells(0)
Me.DataGridView1.FirstDisplayedScrollingRowIndex = rowIndex
