I have added a context menu to my DataGridView which appears when right-clicking on a cell. But how do I also select that cell as well as pop up the menu when it is right-clicked? I've tried using the MouseClick and Click events but they don't seem to be called when a context menu is present.

Add a CellMouseDown handler like this:

  private void dataGridView1_CellMouseDown(object sender, DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs e)
  {
     if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Right)
    {
       // Set the current cell to the one right-clicked on.
       DataGridView.HitTestInfo hit = this.dataGridView1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);
       this.dataGridView1.CurrentCell = this.dataGridView1[e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex];
     }
  }
