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 Selectedproperty to true.
Legacy Code Example
The following code example demonstrates how to use 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.property in the
Private Sub UserDeletingRow(ByVal sender As Object, _ ByVal e As DataGridViewRowCancelEventArgs) _ Handles DataGridView1.UserDeletingRow Dim startingBalanceRow As DataGridViewRow = DataGridView1.Rows(0) ' Check if the starting balance row is included in the selected rows If DataGridView1.SelectedRows.Contains(startingBalanceRow) Then ' Do not allow the user to delete the Starting Balance row. MessageBox.Show("Cannot delete Starting Balance row!") ' Cancel the deletion if the Starting Balance row is included. e.Cancel = True End If End Sub
