vb.net datagrid view row header selection

Hi, I am trying to get the row heaer selected but for some rason it does not work. (This little black arrow on the row selection on the left)

Here is my code that does the job and selects the row but not row header..

For Each row As DataGridViewRow In Me.DataGridView1.Rows
        If selectedLineNo = row.Cells.Item("LINENO").Value Then
        Me.DataGridView1.FirstDisplayedScrollingRowIndex = row.Index
        Me.DataGridView1.Refresh()
        Me.DataGridView1.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridView1.Rows(row.Index).Cells(0)
		Me.DataGridView1.Rows(row.Index).Selected = True
    Exit For
    End If
Next

Open in new window


Can you please tell me where is the problem?
Thank you for your answer

I knew that it was something simple.

instead of
 
Me.DataGridView1.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridView1.Rows(row.Index).Cells(0)

Open in new window


The solution is as follows:

 
DataGridView1.CurrentCell = DataGridView1.Item(column, row)

Open in new window


Then it works fine.

You want the row header to selected right? To do this just set the property of datagridview to FullRowSelect either at desgn time or programmatically...
DatagridView.SelectionMode = FullRowSelect¿
For Each row As DataGridViewRow In Me.DataGridView1.Rows  
        If selectedLineNo = row.Cells.Item("LINENO").Value Then  
        Me.DataGridView1.FirstDisplayedScrollingRowIndex = row.Index  
        Me.DataGridView1.Refresh()  
        Me.DataGridView1.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridView1.Rows(row.Index).Cells(0)  
                Me.DataGridView1.Rows(row.Index).Selected = True  
    Exit For  
    End If  
Next

I tried that, it does not work. The little black arrow does not appear. It selects the row but without the header. I need that other wise I am getting the following error message in another sub.

 Error
The sub works fine only when both rows from both datagrids are selected properly.

Also make sure that the dataGridView1.RowHeadersVisible is set to true

dataGridView1.RowHeadersVisible = True
