In order to create a custom property, you would need to create a CustomDataGridViewRow that inherits from DataGridViewRow. You could use Tag property instead.

My problem is that I need to allow the user to bookmark a specific row and then easily return to that row after scrolling through the grid.
You would add new class called CustomDataGridView and inherit from DataGridView control. Then you would add new property

Then you would need to add this control on a form instead of DataGridView. If you want to replace existing one, go to the form designer window and replace DataGridView with CustomDataHridView manually in code.

I still understand why don't you use DataGridViewRow.Tag property to flag it?

Hi Priest04:

 I want ability to bookmark so that you can jump between the bookmarked transactions, and mark one or several transactions with colour a flag like in outlook

and i dided as you was saying by using property Tag

 private void FlagTransactions()
            foreach (DataGridViewRow dr in ReconManuallyGridView.Rows)
                dr.Tag = "Michael Sync";

gonadn, it seems that you expect that we sit here and wait to answer to someone's question. Most of us here work, too, so you need to be patient.

I do not understand what exactly are you trying to do. I don't use Outlook so I am not aware of its options. The code you have written will work. So, what is it that troubles you?
