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

Sorry.  Try this:



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

Open in new window

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

Open in new window

Hi,

You can user the e.columnindex to know the NAME of the column like this

        If DataGridView1.Columns(e.ColumnIndex).Name = "column1" Then
            ...
        End If

The name will be the one you assigned in he column properties
