Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public event EventHandler CurrentCellChanged

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example illustrates the use of this event. This example is part of a larger example available in How to: Customize the Appearance of Rows in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

// Forces the row to repaint itself when the user changes the 
// current cell. This is necessary to refresh the focus rectangle.
void dataGridView1_CurrentCellChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (oldRowIndex != -1)
    {
        this.dataGridView1.InvalidateRow(oldRowIndex);
    }
    oldRowIndex = this.dataGridView1.CurrentCellAddress.Y;
}
