DataGridView.CellMouseEnter Event

Occurs when the mouse pointer enters a cell.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public event DataGridViewCellEventHandler CellMouseEnter

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example shows a CellMouseEnter event handler in a Tic-Tac-Toe game implementation that uses image columns in a DataGridView control. The event handler uses the cell value to determine the cursor and ToolTip to display.

This code is part of a larger example shown in How to: Work with Image Columns in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

private void dataGridView1_CellMouseEnter(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    Bitmap markingUnderMouse = (Bitmap)dataGridView1.
           Rows[e.RowIndex].
           Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Value;

    if (markingUnderMouse == blank)
    {
        dataGridView1.Cursor = Cursors.Default;
    }
    else if (markingUnderMouse == o || markingUnderMouse == x)
    {
        dataGridView1.Cursor = Cursors.No;
        ToolTip(e, true);
    }
}

private void ToolTip(DataGridViewCellEventArgs e, bool showTip)
{
    DataGridViewImageCell cell = (DataGridViewImageCell)
        dataGridView1
        .Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex];
    DataGridViewImageColumn imageColumn =
        (DataGridViewImageColumn)
        dataGridView1.Columns[cell.ColumnIndex];

    if (showTip) cell.ToolTipText = imageColumn.Description;
    else { cell.ToolTipText = String.Empty; }
}

private void dataGridView1_CellMouseLeave(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    ToolTip(e, false);
    dataGridView1.Cursor = Cursors.Default;
}
