A DataGridView.HitTestInfo describes a coordinate pair on the DataGridView control. The Type property indicates which part of the DataGridView contains the point.

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];
        }
    }
}
