Hiding Rows in DataGridView

Hi, I'm using VB 2005, WinForms. I have a DataGridView on one of my Forms that contains a set of records. For example purposes in this question, lets assume the records in my DataGridView are similar to the ones below:

Item Name          Type          
Hammer                 A                
Bolt Cutter             A
Screw Driver          A
Electric Drill            B
Electric Saw           B
Hand Saw              A

As you can see all the hand tools are of type "A" and all the electric tools are of type "B".

How can I programatically hide either type?  Let say I wanted to show my user only the hand tools, how do I hide the electric tools?  

I don't want to "removed" them from the DataGridView, because I want to show them at a later time. I simply want to hide them perhaps by using a button click or something similar.

Thanks,
Fulano

You can set Visible property of Rows to False.
Example :
For i as Integer = 0 To yourDataGridView.RowCount - 1
    If yourDataGridView.Rows(i).Cells("Type").ToString() = "B" Then
       yourDataGridView.Rows(i).Visible = False
    End Iif
Next

Hi jlj1527, one quick followup question...I had to change ".ToSotring()" to "Value" otherwise it would not give me the proper value of the cell, but now I get the error message below"

For i as Integer = 0 To yourDataGridView.RowCount - 1
   If yourDataGridView.Rows(i).Cells("Type").Value = "B" Then  <<<< Changed!
      yourDataGridView.Rows(i).Visible = False
   End If
Next

ERROR MESSAGE:

Additional information: Row associated with the currency manager's position
cannot be made invisible.


What is the "currency manager's position" and how do I fix this...?

Thanks,
Fulano

Nevermind...I figured it out. You need to add:

>> yourDataGridView.CurrentCell = Nothing <<

For i as Integer = 0 To yourDataGridView.RowCount - 1
   If yourDataGridView.Rows(i).Cells("Type").Value = "B" Then  <<<< Changed!
      yourDataGridView.CurrentCell = Nothing
      yourDataGridView.Rows(i).Visible = False
   End If
Next

Thanks again,
Fulano
