selected rows in winform gridview

I have a gridview created in windows forms. I need to obtain the selected rows in the grid view, and clear the contents of column with index 3.
That is, the values of cells in column 3 in selected rows should be made "".

Should I use the SelectedRow property for this purpose? If yes, how?

Hi
Do you mean a DataGridView rather than a Gridview?

Anyway try something like this...
namespace EEGridView
{
    partial class Mainform
    {
        /// <summary>

        /// </summary>

        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
        {
            if (disposing && (components != null))
            {

Perfect! Thanks a lot. This is what I needed.

 private void TestButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            foreach (DataGridViewRow row in testGrid.SelectedRows)
            {
                row.Cells[2].Value = string.Empty;
            }            
        }

PS:
I think in Windows Forms its called DataGridView (System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView), and in web controls its called GridView (System.Web.UI.WebControls)

Yep thats right about the names.
To make it even more confusing they have different names in earlier versions of the framework too!
