Hi Tom,  
Thanks for using Syncfusion controls.  
You can able to detect the right mouse click of GridCell by using SfDataGrid.CellClick event. Please refer the below code snippet.  
this.sfDataGrid1.CellClick += SfDataGrid1_CellClick;  
private void SfDataGrid1_CellClick(object sender, Syncfusion.WinForms.DataGrid.Events.CellClickEventArgs e)  
        var rowColumnIndex =this.sfDataGrid1.TableControl.PointToCellRowColumnIndex(e.MouseEventArgs.Location);  
Please find the sample below.

Thanks for your reply. I am using Visual Basic and have the following code (derived from the C# code you provided and where gridReceipts is a sfdatagrid).

    Private Sub gridReceipts_CellClick(sender As Object, e As CellClickEventArgs) Handles gridReceipts.CellClick
        If e.MouseEventArgs.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
            Dim rowColumnIndex = gridReceipts.TableControl.PointToCellRowColumnIndex(e.MouseEventArgs.Location)
        End If
    End Sub

I get the following error:  Option Strict On requires all variable declarations to have an 'As' clause

I cannot use the type 'RowColumnIndex' (as specified in your example for sfdatagrid online help) and if I do the compiler throws an error. (Type 'RowColumnIndex' is not defined.

Could you please advise what type I should use in the 'as' clause?

Hi Tom,  
Thank you for update. 
We have analyzed your reported issue with provided code example. But the issue is not reproduced and  the sample is executed without any compiler error at our end. And you can use the type RowColumnIndex from the Syncfusion.WinForms.GridCommon.ScrollAxis namespace.

If still you are facing the same issue, please revert us with more details on replication procedure/video illustration of the issue. Also if possible, please revert us with the modified sample. It will helps us to investigate further and provide earlier prompt solution.

Once I referenced Syncfusion.WinForms.GridCommon.ScrollAxis then the errors disappeared and the function works as documented. Thanks.
