How could I get the location of the currently selected cell? I need to display a form next to the currently selected cell. I tried frmMyNewForm.Location = myGrid.RectangleToScreen(myGrid.RangeInfoToRectangle(myGrid.CurrentCell.RangeInfo)).Location but thats not it...

Does the form and the grid have the same parent? The Location property is in the parent''s coordinate system, so you may have to call grid.RectangleToScreen and then form.Parent.RectangleToClient to get things to match.

Here''s my hierarchy. MDI Form | --- MDI Child form | --- Grid on the form | --- Grid in the grid | --- Cell in the grid | --- New form How do I get the location of the "Cell in the grid" so that I can position the "New form" at the right coordinates?

You need to make sure the new form has form.StartPosition = manual. Then you set its Location property in screen coordinates.
