I have this code that gets the count of selected rows ok but I want the string of whats shown on the attached as opposed to the index number of the row. not sure how to do that.

[code][code]
    Private Sub PanelLinkShort_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles PanelLinkShort.Click


        Dim selectedRowCount As Integer =
           DataGridViewStringsBulk.Rows.GetRowCount(DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
        Dim x As String
        If selectedRowCount > 0 Then

            Dim i As Integer
            For i = 0 To selectedRowCount - 1

                'get rows
                x = DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i).Index.ToString()


            Next i

Could it be:

x = DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i)("CertainColumn").Value

what do you mean? I have copied the name of your control from your code so it should be good? Where have you placed the new line of code? Inside your loop I hope! What is the error message that you get?

it says it cannot be indexed because datagridviewrow has no default property

      If selectedRowCount > 0 Then

            Dim i As Integer
            For i = 0 To selectedRowCount - 1

                'get rows


                x = DataGridViewStringsBulk.SelectedRows(i)("Strshort").Value
            Next i


            MessageBox.Show("Finished")

        End If
