[SOLVED] Datagridview move row-up / row-down

Answered Closed



is there a way to change to move a row up/down via drag&drop or via a button-up and button-down?

i found the below article but i get an error https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awG8UZ7WAn8 as the below code is not recognized

rowIndex = DataGridView1.SelectedCells(0).OwningRow.Index


I have a built a tool with a datagridview connected to a database, but the user should have the possibility to change the priority.

I can create a button and let the datagridview refresh after every button click up/down but my thought is this will slow down the applications to much.

so my thought was to change the order in the datagridview without updating the database, and in the end the user can click the confirm button to update the database with the new order.


has anybody some experience? thanks in advance.
