Focus and Scroll Rows

The vertical and property grid controls allow you to navigate through rows in code. Typical scenarios:

  • focus a specific row;
  • scroll to a specific row without focusing it;
  • ensure that multiple rows are visible simultaneously;
  • display a specific row at the top of the grid;
  • synchronize the grid with a control that displays related data.

This topic describes how to focus rows and scroll the view vertically. To learn how to focus records and scroll the view horizontally, see Focus and Scroll Records. To learn how users can focus cells and scroll the view, see Navigating Through Cells.
