DataGridCell Structure

Identifies a cell in the grid.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public struct DataGridCell

The DataGridCell can be used in conjunction with the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control's CurrentCell property to get or set the value of any cell. Setting the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control's CurrentCell property to a DataGridCell causes the focus to move to the cell specified by the DataGridCell.

The following example assigns the DataGridCell to the CurrentCell of a System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid and returns the column and row number of the selected cell. The value stored in the DataTable is also printed using the DataGridCell object's RowNumber and ColumnNumber.

private void PrintCellRowAndCol()
   DataGridCell myCell;
   myCell = DataGrid1.CurrentCell;
   // Prints the value of the cell through the DataTable.
   DataTable myTable;
   // Assumes the DataGrid is bound to a DataTable.
   myTable = (DataTable) DataGrid1.DataSource;
