How to get the coordinates of current cell in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |

Position of current cell

To retrieve the co-ordinates of the current cell in GridControl, you can use the RangeInfoToRectangle() method. It converts the RangeInfo of the current cell to a rectangle-like object. Using this rectangle, you can get the co-ordinates like Top, Left, Height and Width.

C#

//Hook the MouseClick event to find the co-ordinates of the current cell.
this.gridControl1.MouseClick += gridControl1_MouseClick;
void gridControl1_MouseClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    //Get CurrentCell from Grid.
    GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
    //Get the rectangular RangeInfo of CurrentCell.
    Rectangle cellRect = this.gridControl1.RangeInfoToRectangle(GridRangeInfo.Cell(cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex));
    //Display the coordinates of the CurrentCell.
    MessageBox.Show(cellRect.ToString());
}

VB

'Hook the MouseClick event to find the co-ordinates of the current cell.
Private Me.gridControl1.MouseClick += AddressOf gridControl1_MouseClick
Private Sub gridControl1_MouseClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseEventArgs)
    'Get CurrentCell from Grid.
    Dim cc As GridCurrentCell = Me.gridControl1.CurrentCell
    'Get the rectangular RangeInfo of CurrentCell.
    Dim cellRect As Rectangle = Me.gridControl1.RangeInfoToRectangle(GridRangeInfo.Cell(cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex))
    'Display the coordinates of the CurrentCell.
    MessageBox.Show(cellRect.ToString())
End Sub

The following screenshot displays the coordinates of the CurrentCell.
