DataGrid.CurrentRowIndex Property


Gets or sets index of the row that currently has focus.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public int CurrentRowIndex { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The zero-based index of the current row.

Exception Condition

There is no CurrencyManager.

Setting the CurrentRowIndex property to a value other than its current value scrolls the control so that the specified row is in view.

The CurrentRowIndex property enables you to iterate through a parent table's rows even if you are viewing the child table rows. For example, if you are viewing a child table, incrementing the CurrentRowIndex will cause the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid to display the next set of records in the child table that are linked to the parent table.

If the user is viewing a parent table, or a table with no child relations, then the property returns the zero-based index of the current row.

The following code example returns the CurrentRowIndex.

private void GetSelectedIndex(DataGrid myGrid){

 private void SetSelectedIndex(DataGrid myGrid, int selIndex){
    myGrid.CurrentRowIndex = selIndex;
