I am making a right click context menu available in my grid. The menu may be different depending on which cell was "right clicked" on. I can detect the Current Cell, but the Right CLick action does not make a cell the current cell.

I know how to use the MouseRightButtonDown and MouseRightButtonUp events, but I don't know how to detect which cell the user was over when they performed the right click action.

Is it possible to activte the cell using the right click event?

Thanks for your help.

Hi William,

Handling MouseRightButtonDown event you can activate the current cell during right click action of the mouse. The c# code is given below.

Code behind:

void gridControl1_MouseRightButtonDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
var cell = this.gridControl1.PointToCellRowColumnIndex(e);
e.Handled = true;

Let us know if you need any details.
