}

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::DataGridViewSelectedRowCollection^

A DataGridViewSelectedRowCollection that contains the rows selected by the user.

The SelectionMode property must be set to FullRowSelect or RowHeaderSelect for the SelectedRows property to be populated with selected rows.

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 Selectedproperty to true.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SelectedRows property in the UserDeletingRow event. In this example, if the first row is contained in the SelectedRows collection, then the deletion is canceled. This example is part of a larger example available in the SelectionChanged event.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
