Grid Selection, Changes when refresh data

Hai, I am using DataBoundGrid, and the contents gets refreshed each time I press a refresh button. But the problem is, when I refresh the contents of the grid, the selection goes to the row just above the current selection. ( Selection shifts one row up each time I refresh the contents). The grid is wired with Filter bar. I update the filterbar, each time I refresh data. Is there any specific reason for this. Is there any means by which I can avoid the same.. THanks in advance, Bidin

How are you refreshing the contents of the grid? Are you doing a DataSet.Merge, or changing values directly in the grid using an indexer on the grid, or changing values directly in your datatable, or set a new datasource to the grid, or something else?. Can you post a little sample showing the problem? If not, can you post your code that you use to refresh the contents?

Here is the sample which I use to refresh the grid data within a class derived from DataBoundGrid. _dataSet is a member variable. Which gets merged with the new data. DataSet ds = _dataSet.Clone(); ds.ReadXml(new System.IO.StringReader((xmlData))); _dataSet.Merge(ds, false, MissingSchemaAction.AddWithKey); this.BeginUpdate(); this.FreezePainting = true; this.DataSource = _dataSet.Tables["M"]; this.BringToFront(); this.FreezePainting = false; this.EndUpdate();

I don''t really understand how the grid would play a role on how the data is merged into this data set. If you use the same code to update a Windows Forms DataGrid, does the data get positioned properly there? You mentioned a FilterBar in your first post. You might consider unwiring and re-wiring the filterbar (while freezePainting is true) to see if that affects anything? Is there an active filter when this code is being hit?
