Remaining selection on a cell after refresh

I update contents of GridControl on timer, but the cell previously selected must remain selected after refresh (i.e. with selection border). I can save its row and col before updating, but how can I programmatically select it again? And show selection BORDER!

Thank you.

Hi Andrey,

One way you can do this by using the Model.Selections property. The Model.Selections property allows you to add, remove and get selections, determines selection state of a specific cell. Here is a code

//Before calling the Refresh method you need to store the selected range to the GridRangeInfoList
GridRangeInfoList list;
this.gridControl1.Model.Selections.GetSelectedRanges(out list,true);

//and then set the list as selected range in a grid after calling the refresh.
foreach(GridRangeInfo info in list)

Best regards,

Hi, Haneef!
The code above works fine except the fact I need to see a border around the cell, as after mouse click - in the color scheme we work with, the selection color is light gray and is almost not visible. In other words, I need to emulate mouse click on the cell in order to see selection border.

Hi Andrey,

Please try this code.

int RowIndex = this.grid.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
int ColIndex = this.grid.CurrentCell.ColIndex;


this.grid.CurrentCell.MoveTo( RowIndex,ColIndex ,GridSetCurrentCellOptions.SetFocus);

Best regards,
