I need to display a menu at cursor position when user rigth click in a cell in a datagridview.
I'm including my code, the menu is displayed at top of the datagridview (dgv1), not at cursor position.
Thanks.
Private Sub dgv1_CellMouseClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs) Handles dgv1.CellMouseClick
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right Then
            Dim p As New Point(e.X, e.Y)
            mnuOrdenes.Show(dgv1, p)
        End If
    End Sub

Why not simply set the "ContextMenuStrip" property of the DataGriView to "mnuOrdenes"? That will do exactly as you require.

Because it displays the menu although the datagridview is empty (without rows) or the user clicks outside datagrid cells.

In that case, you can use the ContextMenuStrip's Opening event to perform a hittest on the DGV to determine where it is clicked, and if not a cell, cancel the context menu.

    Private Sub ContextMenuStrip1_Opening(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs) Handles ContextMenuStrip1.Opening
        Dim ht As DataGridView.HitTestInfo = DataGridView1.HitTest(Cursor.Position.X, Cursor.Position.Y)
        If ht.Type <> DataGridViewHitTestType.Cell Then
            e.Cancel = True
        End If
    End Sub

Your problem is that the coordinates you get using e are relative and relate to the cell, not the GDV.

Try this:
        If e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right Then
            ContextMenuStrip1.Show(DataGridView1, Point.Add(DataGridView1.GetCellDisplayRectangle(e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex, True).Location, e.Location))
        End If
