How to: Obtain and Modify Selected Rows

This example demonstrates how to obtain selected rows, and then change values of their "Discounted" column cells.

If Grid data is sorted or filtered, changes made to one Grid row can make other rows change their order and, as a result, their row handles. For that reason you cannot access selected rows by their handles and process these rows right away. Instead, pass row handles retrieved by ColumnView.GetSelectedRows method to the ColumnView.GetDataRow method. This allows you to access underlying data source objects (in this example, DataRows), save them to an array, and safely change their values afterwards.

Each row modification forces the Grid View to update itself. Enclose your code with the BaseView.BeginUpdate and BaseView.EndUpdate method calls to avoid excessive updates. Refer to the Batch Modifications Overview document for details.
