Hi,

After I load the GridView with a Data Table, How do I automatically select the first row, required to activate data in another Grid.

If FilteredDTA.Rows.Count > 0 Then
                Me.C1A.DataSource = FilteredDTA
               C1A.Rows(0).Selected = True '*** Does not work
End If

Thanks,

Victor

Hi Victor;

This command, C1A.Rows(0).Selected = True, should be selecting the first row of the DataGridView C1A. What will not be happening is the automatic selection of the matching rows in the other DataGridView because that is being selected through code. If you want them to be selected you need to call the code that selects them.

Hi,

I thought so too, but the first row is not highlighted, shouldn't it be highlighted when selected?

Thanks,

Hi,

My mistake, I used the wrong code. Since the code to load the first Grid is in the Form load event, to activate the code to view the data in the other other grid, I will also include the code in the Formload event.

Thanks,

You may want to place that code in a Sub so that when you need it you can make a single call to it.
