VB.net Menu not appearing where mouse is

I am using the following code to show a menu on right clicking a DataGridView, but the menu shows at the the top left of the DataGridView rather than where my mouse is

      If e.Button = MouseButtons.Right Then
                Me.ContextMenuStrip1.Show(Me.DataGridView1, New System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y))
                Me.ContextMenuStrip1.BringToFront()
            End if

Assign the contextmenustrip to the DGV in DGV properties.  There should be no need to Manually show it.
The contextmenustrip should automatically popup when DGV is right clicked. (in the correct location.

in which event have you placed this code? if it is in the DGV right click event, I think the X and Y are relative to the top-left coordinates of the DGV itself.

Try this:
Me.ContextMenuStrip1.Show(Me.DataGridView1, New System.Drawing.Point(DataGridView1.left+e.X, DataGridView1.top+e.Y))
