Public Class DataGridViewCellEventArgs _
	Inherits EventArgs

The DataGridViewCellEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodDataGridViewCellEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the DataGridViewCellEventArgs class.

Public propertyColumnIndexGets a value indicating the column index of the cell that the event occurs for.
Public propertyRowIndexGets a value indicating the row index of the cell that the event occurs for.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The following code example demonstrates using CellMouseEnter and CellMouseLeave event handlers to determine whether a cell can be clicked. The example updates each ToolTipText property value to advertise the current image layout. This code is part of a larger example shown in How to: Work with Image Columns in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellMouseEnter(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) _
    Handles dataGridView1.CellMouseEnter

    Dim markingUnderMouse As Bitmap = _
        CType(dataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex). _
            Cells(e.ColumnIndex).Value, Bitmap)

    If markingUnderMouse Is blank Then
        dataGridView1.Cursor = Cursors.Default 
    ElseIf markingUnderMouse Is o OrElse markingUnderMouse Is x Then
        dataGridView1.Cursor = Cursors.No
    End If 
End Sub 

Private Sub ToolTip( _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs)

    Dim cell As DataGridViewImageCell = _
        CType(dataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex). _
        Cells(e.ColumnIndex), DataGridViewImageCell)
    Dim imageColumn As DataGridViewImageColumn = _
        CType(dataGridView1.Columns(cell.ColumnIndex), _

    cell.ToolTipText = imageColumn.Description
End Sub 

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellMouseLeave(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) _
    Handles dataGridView1.CellMouseLeave

    dataGridView1.Cursor = Cursors.Default 
End Sub
