Can you just store the index in a variable on selection, then after the refresh re-select the index?

Can you just store the index in a variable on selection You mean array? But as I am rebinding more rows might get added so indexes change. I have a selection boolean column though.

Maybe I misread, are you adding more columns each time or just rows?  Even if you added more rows, the column index would be the same unless you were changing that for some reason; but then you can just find the index that matches the column header to solve that.

Are you wanting to retain a column selection, or a row selection?

Does your data selection contain a identity key?  On refresh, you can get the primary identity key of the row and then store that, then use this to re-select after the refresh.

I'd probably use a list<int>.

For each row in your selection, store the primary key in the integer list and then after the refresh, call another function that selects (if exists in the new data) the primary key records you had originally selected.
