DataGridView.OnCellClick Method (DataGridViewCellEventArgs)


Raises the CellClick event.

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

Protected Overridable Sub OnCellClick (
	e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs


Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs

A DataGridViewCellEventArgs that contains the event data.

Exception Condition

The value of the ColumnIndex property of e is greater than the number of columns in the control minus one.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, seeNIB: Raising an Event.

The OnCellClick method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnCellClick in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnCellClick method so that registered delegates receive the event.
