I am assigning a list to a datagridview like below - but when I select the header to sort asc or desc on any field and I go to edit a cell by double clicking a row or cell to load the record - it is not loading the right record. it is almost like the datagrid sorted visually but not programmatically

 for (int i = 0; i < searchJob.Count(); i++)
            {
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows.Add();
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["JobID"].Value = searchJob[i].JobID;
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Company"].Value = searchJob[i].company;
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["WellName"].Value = searchJob[i].wellname;
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Rig"].Value = searchJob[i].rig;
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["RigNumber"].Value = searchJob[i].rignum;
                                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["OnLocationDate"].Value = searchJob[i].OnLocationDateTime;
                dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["OffLocationDate"].Value = searchJob[i].OffLocationDateTime;
                if (searchJob[i].inprogress || searchJob[i].initiated)
                {
                    dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Days"].Value = (DateTime.Now - searchJob[i].OnLocationDateTime).Days;
                }
                else if (searchJob[i].cancelled || searchJob[i].potential)
                {
                    dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Days"].Value = 0;
                }
                else
                {
                    dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Days"].Value = (searchJob[i].OffLocationDateTime - searchJob[i].OnLocationDateTime).Days;

                }
                if (searchJob[i].inprogress) { dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Status"].Value = "in progress"; }
                else if (searchJob[i].initiated) { dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Status"].Value = "initiated"; }
                else if (searchJob[i].complete) { dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Status"].Value = "complete"; }
                else if (searchJob[i].cancelled) { dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Status"].Value = "cancelled"; }
                else if (searchJob[i].potential) { dataGridViewSearch.Rows[i].Cells["Status"].Value = "potential"; }
  
            }
            Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default;
        }

From what I see that loads the gird but you are asking about selecting a row after sorting.
After this code runs the order of items in searchJob matches that of the grid but does it still do so after a sort?

How do you select the row after sorting / how do you sort the grid ?  (Maybe your problem is you use searchJob instead of the grid when you attempt to edit a record)

I use the automatic sort when the user clicks the header name
this is my doubleclick method

        private void dataGridViewSearch_DoubleClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            //qzz
            //int i = dataGridViewSearch.CurrentRow.Index;
            try
            {
                if (dataGridViewSearch.CurrentRow == null)
                {

                }
                else
                {
                    currentJob = searchJob.ElementAt(dataGridViewSearch.CurrentRow.Index);

                    tabsareok = true;
                    OpenJobFile();
                }
            }
            catch
            {

            }
        }

>>currentJob = searchJob.ElementAt(dataGridViewSearch.CurrentRow.Index);

As I said, you are using the index in the grid and the element from another collection at the same index AFTER you have changed the ordering in one but not the other.
You need to find a unique identifier for the selected job in the grid then search through the searchJob collection for the record with that same identifier.

 int jobnum1;
                    bool jobNum = int.TryParse(dataGridViewSearch.CurrentRow.Cells["JobID"].EditedFormattedValue.ToString(),out jobnum1);
                    if (jobNum == true)
                    {
                        currentJob = searchJob.Find(item => item.JobID == jobnum1);
                    }
