Hi there,
I want to implement the following.

When the user clicks anywhere on a row, i want the borders of the row (OR all top and bottom cell borders and the left border of the first cell and the right border of the last cell) to become red.

Is that possible? Can i have some suggested code please?
Thanks

In order to draw borders in a cell, you can handle the CellPainting event, and draw your own lines, when the cell's RowIndex is the currently selected row.

It will be very easy if you use jQuery.
After datagridview declaration,
write function as-
bind click function to each tr of datagridview table (rendered).
than use addClass("classname");

and declare class name in css file.
write in css definition as:
border:3px;

ref:
http://api.jquery.com/bind/
http://api.jquery.com/addClass/

hope you will get what i mean.
