DataGridCell.ColumnNumber Property


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

 property int ColumnNumber { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int ColumnNumber { get; set; }
member this.ColumnNumber : int with get, set
Public Property ColumnNumber As Integer

Property Value


The number of the column.


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.

void PrintCell( Object^ sender, MouseEventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   DataGrid^ thisGrid = dynamic_cast<DataGrid^>(sender);
   DataGridCell myDataGridCell = thisGrid->CurrentCell;
   BindingManagerBase^ bm = BindingContext[ thisGrid->DataSource,thisGrid->DataMember ];
   DataRowView^ drv = dynamic_cast<DataRowView^>(bm->Current);
   Console::WriteLine( drv[ myDataGridCell.ColumnNumber ] );
   Console::WriteLine( myDataGridCell.RowNumber );

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]);

Private Sub PrintCell(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs)
   Dim thisGrid As DataGrid = CType(sender, DataGrid)
   Dim myDataGridCell As DataGridCell = thisGrid.CurrentCell
   Dim bm As BindingManagerBase = _
   BindingContext (thisGrid.DataSource, thisGrid.DataMember)
   Dim drv As DataRowView = CType(bm.Current, DataRowView)
End Sub


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