VB 2008 - Attempting to select all DataGridView rows

I am attempting to select all the grid's rows but failing.  I just don't know how to write this code.

Although the grid is named  EvalItemsDataGridView the design-time compiler says it "is not a collection type".

        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In EvalItemsDataGridView
            DataGridViewRow.CurrentRow.Selected = True
        Next

Hi,


In asp.net gridview you can not select multiple rows at a time. If you try to do  so
using
        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In EvalItemsDataGridView
            DataGridViewRow.CurrentRow.Selected = True
        Next


then it will select last selected row.

To select multiple rows you need to extend functionality of gridview.

OK, but let's start with the VB problem I mention in the initial question:  what is wrong with the portion of the statement: EvalItemsDataGridView - when that is the name of the grid?

Datagrid is not a collection

for that you need to specify

        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In EvalItemsDataGridView.Rows
            DataGridViewRow.CurrentRow.Selected = True
        Next

To select all rows, simply use this....

    DataGridView1.SelectAll()
