public class RegularColumn : DataGridTextBoxColumn { private int SelectedRow = -1; protected override void Edit(System.Windows.Forms.CurrencyManager source, int rowNum, System.Drawing.Rectangle bounds, bool readOnly,string instantText,bool cellIsVisible) { SelectedRow = rowNum; this.DataGridTableStyle.DataGrid.Select(SelectedRow); } ... This works fine so far that when i click a cell it selects the entire row. So far so good. But if i click another cell on another row i want that selected aswell... but when Edit is entered the next time the DataGrid has completely forgot the last selection and says that nothing is selected. So i get a single-select datagrid when iwant a multiselect. It works if i dont inherit Edit and instead use the RowHeader to select but i dont want to have a RowHeader thats why i want this solution to work. //Rickard
