CollectionView.MoveCurrentTo(Object) Method


Sets the specified item to be the CurrentItem in the view.

 virtual bool MoveCurrentTo(System::Object ^ item);
public virtual bool MoveCurrentTo (object item);
abstract member MoveCurrentTo : obj -> bool
override this.MoveCurrentTo : obj -> bool
Public Overridable Function MoveCurrentTo (item As Object) As Boolean



The item to set as the CurrentItem.


true if the resulting CurrentItem is within the view; otherwise, false.



The following example demonstrates the use of this method.

// Event handler for the NewColor button
void  OnNewColorClicked(object sender, RoutedEventArgs args)
  Button button = (Button)sender;
  ColorItemList colorList = (ColorItemList)button.DataContext;
  CollectionView cv = (CollectionView)CollectionViewSource.GetDefaultView((IEnumerable)colorList);

  // add a new color based on the current one, then select the new one
  ColorItem newItem = new ColorItem((ColorItem)cv.CurrentItem);
' Event handler for the NewColor button
Private Sub OnNewColorClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As RoutedEventArgs)
  Dim button As Button = CType(sender, Button)
  Dim colorList As ColorItemList = CType(button.DataContext, ColorItemList)
  Dim cv As CollectionView = CType(CollectionViewSource.GetDefaultView(CType(colorList, IEnumerable)), CollectionView)

  ' add a new color based on the current one, then select the new one
  Dim newItem As New ColorItem(CType(cv.CurrentItem, ColorItem))
End Sub


If the specified item is not found, the method returns false and the CurrentItem is positioned before the beginning of the collection in the view.

Collection views support the concept of a current record pointer. As you navigate through the objects in a collection view, you are moving a record pointer that allows you to retrieve the object that exists at that particular location in the collection.
