vb.net datagridview column name

Private Sub DgvDetalhe_CellClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DgvDetalhe.CellClick

If e.ColumnIndex = 2 Then

Is possible replace column index by column name, something like if e.columnindex="column1" then

If you us this code, it will work for you:

if e.columnindex = Directcast(sender, DataGridView).Columns.IndexOf("columnname"))

Open in new window


Sorry had too many ) and omitted then and end if-- see revised code here:

If e.ColumnIndex = DirectCast(sender, DataGridView).Columns.IndexOf("columnname") Then
End If

Open in new window


rogerard, in this part of code an error appear:

IndexOf("columnname") -> value of type string cannot be converted to system.windows.forms.datagridviewcolumn

Sorry.  Try this:

If e.ColumnIndex = DirectCast(sender, DataGridView).Columns.IndexOf(DirectCast(sender, DataGridView).Columns.Item("columnname")) Then
    End If

Open in new window


Or simpler, this:

    If e.ColumnIndex = DirectCast(sender, DataGridView).Columns.Item("columnname").Index Then
    End If

Open in new window
