Something like this:

        private void dataGridView1_MouseDoubleClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
            if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)
                DataGridView.HitTestInfo hitTest = this.dataGridView1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y);

                if (hitTest != null && hitTest.RowIndex != -1 && hitTest.ColumnIndex != -1)

Do you want the row index, or the column index?
Add an event handler for the RowHeaderMouseDoubleClick event if you want the row.
Add an event handler for OnSelectionChanged event if you want the column.
