Good Day Experts!

I have more of a design type "opinion" question.  

I have a DataGridview that I load with records from a SQL table.  The User can then select multiple rows and right-click to execute functionality on those selected rows.  

When the code is done and I reset the cursor back, how would you display the DataGrid?
Would you leave the rows selected or deselect and put get that little black arrow on the left back to the top next to the first row?

Thanks,

Sorry, I meant the mouse cursor I reset back from the hourglass.

Depends on what the action is and what the workflow is. Would the user want to do something else on same rows after finishing what they did? Or would they want to do something else. I think this will be the basic deciding factor.

They would be done with the action on the rows.

Then I would deselect the rows or provide a button which does that.

Ok, I have it part way:

dgrdGetBills.ClearSelection()
dgrdGetBills.Rows(0).Selected = True

Problem is that little black arrow in the left margin of the grid, how do I make that go to the first row like the selection?

Thanks,
