How to select datagridview row if a blank cell is clicked?

I have a datagridview that is populated from a SQL database table.The rows and columns show up properly. I am trying to capture the information from the row when a cell is selected in that row. I am using CellContentClick event and as long as I click on actual text in any cell the event fires and works as it should. However if I click on a blank cell or even on a blank area in a cell that has text, the event will not fire. Is there another cell click event I should use that will run regard whether I click on the actual text or not?

I am programming in VS2010 VB.NET.

Been there!  So annoying, I know.  The answer is to use the CellClick event instead of the CellContentClick event.  It is so much better.  Also, you can get the row's data easily by using the following (NOTE: the big thing here is the DataBoundItem property...the example is just fluff).


Private Sub InvoiceButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles InvoiceButton.Click

    For Each row As DataGridViewRow In Me.DataGridView1.SelectedRows

        Dim cust As Customer = TryCast(row.DataBoundItem, Customer)
        If cust IsNot Nothing Then
            cust.SendInvoice()
        End If

    Next

End Sub
