Perform Find using Dataview in Datagridview without using a For Loop

I have a form that contains a dataviewgrid that can contain a large number of rows.  The sort on the dataview is preset and can also be modified by a pre-defined set of sorts in a dropdown.

The thing I would like to be able to incorporate into this form is a text box where the user can enter a value associated with the FIRST FIELD in the sort order.  At the same time if the sort order contains multiple fields, can I perform a find as I've included common code below to locate the first occurance of the first field in the sort?  I specifically need to be able to move the pointer to this row (glCurrentRow) so that a double-click will allow me to get an ID field hidden in the dataviewgrid.

Dim i As Int64 = 0, vals(1) As Object

        vals(0) = Convert.ToInt64(txtIndex.Text)

        vals(1) = glInvoiceAssessment

        i = dvGlobalDuesInvoices.Find(vals)

        If i >= 0 Then

            glCurrentInvoiceAssessmentEntryRow = i

            glCurrentRow = i

        Else

            glCurrentInvoiceAssessmentEntryRow = 0

            glCurrentRow = 0

        End If

If you are using a DataView, why don't you filter the information using RowFilter() ?

I can't because the code above populates the glCurrentRow variable which is used with MoveNext / MovePrevious subs on the Entry form.  This variable is critical.

The user is able to click a Browse button on the entry form which opens a form with a datagridview using the same datatable.  However, the user is able to change the sort order with a dropdown that may have 3-4 option sort orders.  Then the user double-clicks on the row (activating and repopulating the Entry form) and because of the MoveNext/Previous buttons on the entry form, I must be able to maintain a current row with the COMPLETE datatable.

But the main issue is wanting to just stop at the first instance of a value in the first field in a sort.

You want to maintain the selected row after the sort ? Is that it ?

Check this workaround:
Option Strict On

 

Public Class Form1

 

    Private currentRowID As Integer

 

    ' looks for the index of the ID

    Function getDGindex(ByVal ID As Integer) As Integer

        Dim dr As DataGridViewRow

        For Each dr In DataGridView1.Rows

            If CType(dr.Cells(0).Value, Integer) = ID Then

                Return dr.Index

            End If

        Next

    End Function

 

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Dim rnd As New Random

        Dim dt As New DataTable

        dt.Columns.Add("ID", GetType(Byte))

        dt.Columns.Add("Description", GetType(String))

        dt.Columns.Add("Random", GetType(Integer))

 

        Dim dr As DataRow

        For x As Byte = 0 To 100

            dr = dt.NewRow

            dr("ID") = x

            dr("Description") = "Item" & x.ToString.PadLeft(3, "0"c)

            dr("Random") = rnd.Next(0, 1000)

            dt.Rows.Add(dr)

        Next

 

        Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = dt

        Me.DataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect

    End Sub

 

    ' On row leave detects the select ID and stores it on currentRowID 

    Private Sub DataGridView1_RowLeave(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.RowLeave

        If e.RowIndex <> -1 And Not Me.DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).IsNewRow Then

            currentRowID = CType(Me.DataGridView1(0, e.RowIndex).Value, Integer)

        End If

    End Sub

 

    ' After sort is selects again the selected item

    Private Sub DataGridView1_Sorted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.Sorted

        Dim index As Integer = getDGindex(currentRowID)

        Me.DataGridView1.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridView1.Rows(index).Cells(0)

    End Sub

 

End Class

Yes.

As I specified in the Title.....Without a For Loop
I can have upwards of 40-50 thousand records in this datagridview.  Haven't tested it but I would think using a Loop with this many rows would be pathetic in terms of speed/efficiency.  But I'll check it out just to see.

You can loop in the DataSource instead, using the same code but for the DataSource, that is quicker.

Prefer not to loop but this does work appropriately.
