Hi

The code bellow returns -1 on both row and col index

any ideas why ? The X and Y coordinates show positive numbers
Dim hitTest As DataGridView.HitTestInfo
 

        hitTest = Me.DataGridView13.HitTest(e.X, e.Y)
 

        If hitTest.RowIndex <> -1 AndAlso hitTest.ColumnIndex <> -1 Then

            Dim cell As DataGridViewCell = Me.DataGridView13(hitTest.ColumnIndex, hitTest.RowIndex)

            cell.Value = e.Data.GetData(DataFormats.Text)

        End If

Sorry e.Data.GetData should be for DragDrop:)
The e.X gives you the point on the screen and not in the datagridview. You cannot use that way and you have to first know where that point belong in the grid. Then you use the HitTestInfo.
 Try this way:

    Private Sub DataGridView1_DragDrop(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DragDrop
 

        Dim p As Point = Me.DataGridView1.PointToClient(New Point(e.X, e.Y))

        Dim hitTest As DataGridView.HitTestInfo = DataGridView1.HitTest(p.X, p.Y)
 

        If hitTest.RowIndex <> -1 AndAlso hitTest.ColumnIndex <> -1 Then

            Dim cell As DataGridViewCell = Me.DataGridView1(hitTest.ColumnIndex, hitTest.RowIndex)

            cell.Value = e.Data.GetData(DataFormats.Text)

        End If
 
 

    End Sub
