Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringGets the row number and column number of the cell. (Overrides ValueType.ToString.)

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 Sub PrintCellRowAndCol()
    Dim myCell As DataGridCell
    myCell = DataGrid1.CurrentCell
    Console.WriteLine(myCell.RowNumber)
    Console.WriteLine(myCell.ColumnNumber)
    ' Prints the value of the cell through the DataTable. 
    Dim myTable As DataTable
    ' Assumes the DataGrid is bound to a DataTable.
    myTable = CType(DataGrid1.DataSource, DataTable)
    Console.WriteLine(myTable.Rows(myCell.RowNumber)(myCell.ColumnNumber))
 End Sub
