Hi fellows. I have a DataGridView control with a CheckBoxColumn in it, and a CheckBox on the Header. There are some articles regarding this topic , but, i want the DataGridView to behave like i said in the Subject, like yahoo or gmail when you select the checkbox of an email and the corresponding row gets selected too.Does anyone have some clues regarding this?

Thanks in advance!!!

What did you try? It looks trivial, as the selecting/selected events are available.

if (dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells["chk"].Value == true)
       for(int i=0;i < dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells.Count; i++)
            dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[i].Style.BackColor = Color.Green;
