Hi

I am opening a Windows form in the DragDrop event over a DataGridView. I have done a hit test. How do I open the form at the point where the drag drop occurs using this information?


  Private Sub DataGridView1_DragDrop(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DragDrop
        Try
            Dim oCellAddress As String

            '** NOTE - Find X and Y coorinates or Row and Column index: so can drag into an individual cell or a row
            '   The following code puts whatever text is sent into the destination cell
            Dim p As Point = Me.DataGridView1.PointToClient(New Point(e.X, e.Y))
            Dim hitTest As DataGridView.HitTestInfo = DataGridView1.HitTest(p.X, p.Y)
            Dim oRowIndex As Integer = hitTest.RowIndex
            Dim oColumnIndex As Integer = hitTest.ColumnIndex

              Dim Form_PickQuery As New frmPickQuery
            Form_PickQuery.Show(

What you need to do is:

Dim Form_PickQuery As New frmPickQuery
Form_PickQuery.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual
Form_PickQuery.Left = e.X
Form_PickQuery.Top = e.Y
Form_PickQuery.Show()

Open in new window


Hope that helps.
