DataGridView.CellContentDoubleClick Event


Occurs when the user double-clicks a cell's contents.

 event System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewCellEventHandler ^ CellContentDoubleClick;
public event System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler CellContentDoubleClick;
public event System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler? CellContentDoubleClick;
member this.CellContentDoubleClick : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventHandler 
Public Custom Event CellContentDoubleClick As DataGridViewCellEventHandler 

Event Type


The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the CellContentDoubleClick event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type DataGridView named DataGridView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the CellContentDoubleClick event.

private void DataGridView1_CellContentDoubleClick(Object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ColumnIndex", e.ColumnIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "RowIndex", e.RowIndex );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "CellContentDoubleClick Event" );
Private Sub DataGridView1_CellContentDoubleClick(sender as Object, e as DataGridViewCellEventArgs) _ 
     Handles DataGridView1.CellContentDoubleClick

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ColumnIndex", e.ColumnIndex)
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "RowIndex", e.RowIndex)
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"CellContentDoubleClick Event")

End Sub
