DataGridView.HitTestInfo Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Contains information, such as the row and column indexes, about a specific coordinate pair in the DataGridView control. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public sealed class HitTestInfo
public final class HitTestInfo
public final class HitTestInfo

The HitTest method of the DataGridView class returns a DataGridView.HitTestInfo. You can use this method to determine which part of the DataGridView control is located at the specified coordinates. For example, you can call this method specifying the coordinates of a mouse click to determine the row and column indexes of the clicked cell or whether a header cell or scroll bar was clicked.

The following code example illustrates the use of this type. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridView.Columns property reference topic.

private DataGridViewCell clickedCell;

private void dataGridView1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
// If the user right-clicks a cell, store it for use by the shortcut menu.
    if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
    {
        DataGridView.HitTestInfo hit = dataGridView1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);
        if (hit.Type == DataGridViewHitTestType.Cell)
        {
            clickedCell =
                dataGridView1.Rows[hit.RowIndex].Cells[hit.ColumnIndex];
        }
    }
}
