DataGridCell.ColumnNumber Property

Gets or sets the number of a column in the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control.

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

public int ColumnNumber { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of the column.

You can use the ColumnNumber value to specify a DataColumn in the DataTable associated with the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control.

The following example assigns the CurrentCell property of a System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid to a DataGridCell. The value stored in the DataTable is returned by specifying DataRow and DataColumn objects through the RowNumber and ColumnNumber properties.


private void PrintCell(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
   DataGrid thisGrid = (DataGrid) sender;
   DataGridCell myDataGridCell = thisGrid.CurrentCell;
   BindingManagerBase bm = BindingContext[thisGrid.DataSource, thisGrid.DataMember];
   DataRowView drv = (DataRowView) bm.Current;
   Console.WriteLine(drv [myDataGridCell.ColumnNumber]);
   Console.WriteLine(myDataGridCell.RowNumber);
}
