Gets the collection of rows selected by the user.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
This property contains a read-only snapshot of the selection at the time it is referenced. If you hold onto a copy of this collection, it may differ from the actual, subsequent DataGridView state in which the user may have changed the selection. You should therefore not operate on a copy of the collection.
To programmatically select a row, set its Selected property to true.
The following code example demonstrates how to use the property in the UserDeletingRow event. In this example, if the first row is contained in the collection, then the deletion is canceled. This example is part of a larger example available in the SelectionChanged event.
