I have a windows form that has a bound datagridview, which also has a checkbox column that is not bound.  I run through the gridview and get each row that is checked.  What I need to do then is to get to the underlying datatable that corresponds to this datagridview row.  The dataset table has been filtered before being bound to the datagrid.

thanks

Is there a primary key column? If yes, get value of that cell and then you can get the underlying datarow using

Dim drow As DataRow() = dTable.Select("PrimaryColumnName=" & ValueFromGrid)
0

For i = 0 To gvItems2.Rows.Count - 1
            If gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(0).FormattedValue.ToString = "True" Then
                Dim myRow As DataRow = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).Select("ID=" & gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(1).Value.ToString)

            Else

            End If

        Next

getting "Value of type '-1-dimensional array of system.data.datarow' cannot be converted to 'system.data.datarow'

any Ideas?

Select returns a Datarow array hence I had ()

 Dim myRow As DataRow() = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).Select("ID=" & gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(1).Value.ToString)
0

ok, almost there.  Here is the code I am running.  I am trying to move selected items in grid2 to items in grid1 then remove the items in grid2.  Not quite working leaving the 2nd item in the 2nd grid.  How can I change.  Thanks


        Dim i As Integer = 0
        Dim mystr() As String
        Dim myRow As DataRow()
        For i = 0 To gvItems2.Rows.Count - 1
            If gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(0).FormattedValue.ToString = "True" Then

                myrow = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).Select("ID=" & gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(1).Value.ToString)
                dsRoomItems.Tables(0).ImportRow(myRow(0))
                'dsRoomItems.Tables(1).Rows.Remove(myRow(0))
            Else
            End If
        Next

        Dim mRow As DataGridViewRow


        For Each mRow In gvItems2.Rows
            If mRow.Cells(0).FormattedValue.ToString = "True" Then
                myRow = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).Select("ID=" & mRow.Cells(1).Value.ToString)
                'dsRoomItems.Tables(0).ImportRow(myRow(0))
                dsRoomItems.Tables(1).Rows.Remove(myRow(0))
            Else
            End If
        Next

i receive this error trying to remove the selected items from the grid view:
Additional information: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.

Here is the code:
 For i = 0 To gvItems2.Rows.Count - 1
            If gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(0).FormattedValue.ToString = "True" Then
                myRow = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).DefaultView.Item(i).Row
                myRow.Delete()
                i = i - 1
            Else
            End If
        Next

It can be any of the indexed items such as rows, cells, datatables that you are accessing using index. Do you have 2 DataTables inside the dsRoomItems dataset?

Try following

 For i = 0 to gvItems2.Rows.Count - 1
            If gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(0).FormattedValue.ToString = "True" Then
                myRow = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).DefaultView.Item(i).Row
                myRow.Delete()
            Else
            End If
        Next


i is automatically decremented in a for loop.

CodeCruiser that is what I was trying before I added the I = I-1 what I think is going on is that indexed or rows.count get messed up once I remove the row from the dataset.  Will removing it from grid instead take care of the underlying table?

Try following then


For i = gvItems2.Rows.Count - 1 To 0 Step -1
            If gvItems2.Rows(i).Cells(0).FormattedValue.ToString = "True" Then
                myRow = dsRoomItems.Tables(1).DefaultView.Item(i).Row
                myRow.Delete()
            Else
            End If
        Next

this code sends both selected items over to grid1 however, grid 2 only get rid of 1 item, the 2nd in the checkedlist items, and leaves it checked.   Before the change both items would go over then leave the 2nd one in grid2.   Has got to be something with the index changing in datatable after removing an item.

But still getting same index error.

Index does change after deleting a row but that is why we are starting at the end and progressing to start so that index change does not affect us.

looks like it is working now.  This seems a lot harder than what it is on a web form and datagrid, but I think we got it.  Not sure why it would be so hard, maybe it would be easier if I  bound that column.  Thank you very much. Your the best!!

Glad to help. I find winforms easier than webforms though :-)
