ICollectionView.MoveCurrentTo(Object)

If the specified item is not found, the method returns false and the CurrentItem is positioned before the beginning of the collection in the view.

Collection views support the concept of a current record pointer. As you navigate through the objects in a collection view, you are moving a record pointer that allows you to retrieve the object that exists at that particular location in the collection. For more information, see "Binding to Collections" in Data Binding Overview.

For more information about the current item of a view, see CurrentItem.

The following example demonstrates the use of this method.

// Event handler for the NewColor button 
void  OnNewColorClicked(object sender, RoutedEventArgs args)
{
  Button button = (Button)sender;
  ColorItemList colorList = (ColorItemList)button.DataContext;
  CollectionView cv = (CollectionView)CollectionViewSource.GetDefaultView((IEnumerable)colorList);

  // add a new color based on the current one, then select the new one
  ColorItem newItem = new ColorItem((ColorItem)cv.CurrentItem);
  colorList.Add(newItem);
  cv.MoveCurrentTo(newItem);
}
