ColumnView.SelectRow(Int32) Method

Adds a row (card) to the current selection.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public virtual void SelectRow(
    int rowHandle
)
Public Overridable Sub SelectRow(
    rowHandle As Integer
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
rowHandle Int32

An integer value identifying the row (card) to be selected by its handle.

Remarks

This method does nothing when multiple selections are prohibited (the ColumnViewOptionsSelection.MultiSelect property is set to false) or if the specified row handle is invalid.

Refer to the Multiple Row and Cell Selection topic for additional information on selecting rows and cards.

NOTE

Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the SelectRow member must not be invoked for these Views. The SelectRow member can only be used with real Views that are displayed within the Grid Control. The real Views with which an end-user interacts at runtime can be accessed using the following methods.

Examples

The following code shows how to select rows that contain "Mexico" in the Country column and copy data from these rows.

using DevExpress.XtraGrid;
using DevExpress.XtraGrid.Columns;
using DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base;

ColumnView view = gridControl1.MainView as ColumnView;
GridColumn colCountry = view.Columns["Country"];
GridColumn colCompany = view.Columns["CompanyName"];
if (colCountry == null || colCompany == null) return;

// Enable multiple row selection mode.
view.OptionsSelection.MultiSelect = true;
view.ClearSelection();
int rowHandle = -1;
// Select rows that contain 'Mexico' in the Country column.
while (rowHandle != GridControl.InvalidRowHandle) {
    rowHandle = view.LocateByDisplayText(rowHandle + 1, colCountry, "Mexico");
    view.SelectRow(rowHandle);
}
int[] selectedRowHandles = view.GetSelectedRows();
if (selectedRowHandles.Length > 0) {
    // Move focus to the first selected row.
    view.FocusedRowHandle = selectedRowHandles[0];
    // Copy the selection to the clipboard
    view.CopyToClipboard();
    // Copy the selected company names to a Memo editor.
    memoEdit1.Text = "";
    for (int i = 0; i < selectedRowHandles.Length; i++)
        memoEdit1.Text += view.GetRowCellDisplayText(selectedRowHandles[i], colCompany) + "\r\n";
}
