public event EventHandler CurrentCellChanged

To determine the current cell, use the CurrentCell property.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member.

// Create an instance of the 'CurrentCellChanged' EventHandler.
private void CallCurrentCellChanged()
   myDataGrid.CurrentCellChanged += new EventHandler(Grid_CurCellChange);

// Raise the event when focus on DataGrid cell changes.
private void Grid_CurCellChange(object sender, EventArgs e)
   // String variable used to show message.
   string myString = "CurrentCellChanged event raised, cell focus is at ";
   // Get the co-ordinates of the focussed cell.
   string myPoint  = myDataGrid.CurrentCell.ColumnNumber + "," +
   // Create the alert message.
   myString = myString + "(" + myPoint + ")";
   // Show Co-ordinates when CurrentCellChanged event is raised.
   MessageBox.Show(myString, "Current cell co-ordinates");
