Datagridview - Is a header considered to be a group of 'cells'?

I must already know the answer to this, otherwise when I executed the code and double-clicked on the header it wouldn't have executed my sub.

Private Sub grdviewTable_CellDoubleClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles grdviewTable.CellDoubleClick

If YES, How can I capture whether it's header or row? So that I can execute the code to edit a row.

Try this:

In your CellDoubleClick event:

If e.ColumnIndex <> - 1 Then  ' The header was not clicked on

 ' Do something

End if

Didn't you mean RowIndex?  That was the ticket.

Just the same...that was too easy.  :)

I assumed that you were clicking on the Row Header, but based on your response I believe you want to ignore if the Column Header was clicked.  In that case, you are correct.  The code would be as follows:

In your CellDoubleClick event:

If e.RowIndex <> - 1 Then  ' They clicked on a row

 ' Do something

End if
