Hi,

I'm adding a checkbox in the first column of my Grid using the code in partA, when I click on the checkbox, How do I also highlight the entire row? and If I uncheck the box, how do I also umhighlight the row?



Part A:

Dim CheckBoxCol As New DataGridViewCheckBoxColumn
        With CheckBoxCol
            .Name = "CheckBoxColumn"
            .HeaderText = "Select"
            .Width = 40
        End With
        Me.C1TrueDBGrid3.Columns.Insert(0, CheckBoxCol)
Thanks,

Victor

Hi Victor....

Try this code ..
 Private Sub DataGridView1_CellValueChanged(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellValueChanged
        Try


            If DataGridView1.Columns(e.ColumnIndex).Name = "CheckBoxColumn" Then

                Dim checkCell As DataGridViewCheckBoxCell = _
                    CType(DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells("CheckBoxColumn"),  _
                    DataGridViewCheckBoxCell)
                If CType(checkCell.Value, [Boolean]) = True Then
                    For i As Integer = 0 To Me.DataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1
                        DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(i).Style.BackColor = Color.Red
                        DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(i).Style.SelectionBackColor = Color.Red
                    Next
                Else
                    For j As Integer = 0 To Me.DataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1
                        DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(j).Style.BackColor = Color.White
                        DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(j).Style.SelectionBackColor = Color.White
                    Next
                End If

                DataGridView1.Invalidate()
            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

    Private Sub DataGridView1_CurrentCellDirtyStateChanged(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CurrentCellDirtyStateChanged
        If DataGridView1.IsCurrentCellDirty Then
            DataGridView1.CommitEdit(DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Commit)
        End If
    End Sub
