How select an item by code from a datagridviewcombobox

I'm using 2013. I'm trying to select a item from a DataGridViewComboColumn. I have jet all data charged, and manually working, but I need select some ones by code. Any idea?

For example, I have a list o ten names (as display member) and each ones with an id (as valuemember). I want to select by code an id to show the name.

You should be able to set the SelectedIndex of the combobox column:

YourDGV.CurrentRow.Cells("YourComboBoxColumnName").SelectedIndex = YourValue

Assuming, of course, that the ValueMember is the same as "YourValue".

Thanks, I finally solve the problem. It was a Type mistake. I sent to the DGV.value a number without type. The ValueMember is a long number type, then when I pass a long number the problem solve by itself...
