What do you mean? Select? Highlight multiple rows?

Try this, The following code will select the first and third row in the datagridview

Datagridview1.Rows(0).Selected = True  
Datagridview1.Rows(2).Selected = True

Perhaps you can add to this answer just so I know:  How can I select ALL rows in the grid?

For each row in MyDataGridView  (or something like that?)

For each row as DatagridviewRow in MyDatagridview.rows
row.Selected = true
