Hi everyone!

I need some advice on how to keep a row highlighted (backcolor) after a column header is clicked to resort.

This is what I have right now:

foreach (DataGridViewRow dgvr in dataGridView1.Rows)
                if ((int)dataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells["KEY"].Value == colorHighlightedRowIndex)
                    dataGridView1.Rows[colorHighlightedRowIndex].DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Yellow;
colorhighlightedrowindex is supposed to represent an ID of the record in the database. How can I check for that particular ID after a column header is selected?
KEY is a column in the table.

Google has been no help for the last 30 minutes.

Thanks everyone!

You can do it by changing the default style of the row:[^].

For more information on cell styles and presentation, please see:[^].

Thanks SA! Is that supposed to stay in tact after clicking a column header? What I have now doesn't keep the yellow highlighting after a column header click.
