In VS.NET, the DataGrid default selection property differs from the MS Flexigrid in VB 6. When a user clicks on a populated DataGrid in .NET, the cursor is placed inside the cell for editing. The following sample illustrates how to highlight the entire row when a user clicks on a cell. It calls the HitTest method on MouseUp event handler, which returns a DataGrid.HitTestInfo object that contains information about a part of the DataGrid clicked.
Private Sub onDataGridMouseUp(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.MouseUp Dim pt = New Point(e.X, e.Y) Dim hit As DataGrid.HitTestInfo = DataGrid1.HitTest(pt)
If hit.Type = Windows.Forms.DataGrid.HitTestType.Cell Then DataGrid1.CurrentCell = New DataGridCell(hit.Row, hit.Column) DataGrid1.Select(hit.Row) End If End Sub
