We are trying to obtain the column header cell from a right mouse click to popup a context menu. Unfortunately the Current Cell property does not reflect the selected header.

Hi Thomas,

Here is code that catches a mousedown event and tests to see if it is a right-click on a header.

private void gridDataBoundGrid1_MouseDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
if(e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
Point clickPoint = gridDataBoundGrid1.PointToClient(Cursor.Position);
int rowIndex, colIndex;
gridDataBoundGrid1.PointToRowCol(clickPoint, out rowIndex, out colIndex);
if(rowIndex == 0 && colIndex > 0)

Best regards,
