Gets the inherited shortcut menu for the current cell.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
- Type: System.Int32
The row index of the current cell.
The value of the DataGridView property of the cell is not null and the specified rowIndex is less than 0 or greater than the number of rows in the control minus 1.
ColumnIndex is less than 0, indicating that the cell is a row header cell.
If the cell does not have an associated ContextMenuStrip, it will inherit one from its parents, using the following precedence:
This cell's ContextMenuStrip
The owning row's DataGridViewRow.ContextMenuStrip
The owning column's DataGridViewColumn.ContextMenuStrip
The parent table's System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip
Shortcut menus are Microsoft Windows native resources whose lifetimes are typically directed by the Dispose method or the destructor.
Pass the method the row index you used to retrieve the DataGridViewCell. Do not use the RowIndex property for the rowIndex parameter. If the row is shared, RowIndex is -1, which is not a valid value for rowIndex.
