How to select auto focus point in K5

Hi,
I am new to Pentax and using K-5 with Pentax smc DA 50mm f/1.8 Lens. How to select an auto focus point in 5/11-Focus points group.
Expecting that I can select an available auto focus point in a frame and take shot then change to point point again and take shot.
Thanks,
Vasanth

Select SEL mode using the AF mode switch, then while shooting simply press the OK button and use the directional buttons to change the AF point. You'll see your selection in the viewfinder and on the status screen.

Thanks, caver. I have user manual for K5 but I did not get answers for my need from it. I was expecting something like Adam's reply.
