I would like to set the selected row for a DataGrid in code.  I have some DataTable's default views bound to DataGrid's.  I am comparing both DataTable's for differences cell by cell (same table structure) and want to update the DataGrid's cell background color where the difference occurred.  I have a unique key in the data.  So I want to set the selected row in code where Col A is equal to a specified value.  I already have code that will take the selected row and index Col so I can hit the cell.  But I need to pro-grammatically set the selected row for the DataGrid in code where Col A is equal to a dynamic value specified in code. Everything I am seeing is how to do this on an event but I need to be able to do this in code without an event being fired on the DataGrid.  I am not allowing sorting on the DataGrid so re-ordering wouldn't pose any issues.
