currentcell backcolor

Hi,
I have a datagrid & a datatable, and when I use the mousemove event, I run
into trouble.
private void dgMouseMove(obj ect sender, System.Windows. Forms.MouseEven tArgs e)
{
System.Windows. Forms.DataGrid. HitTestInfo hitInfo = dg.HitTest(new
Point(e.X, e.Y));
.... // find out which cell is entered
dg.CurrentCell = new DataGridCell(hi tInfo.Row,hitIn fo.Column);
.... // use tooltip
}
The problem starts when I set dg.CurrentCell. Whatever it's set to, the
backcolor of that cell changes to what looks like some default color (biege),
and the text is highlighted. Also, the MouseUp event doesn't seem to fire, at
least not consistently. I've been trying to figure this one out for a while
now, and am pretty stuck. Anyone know what to do?
Thanks,
Mel

You do know that the primary purpose of setting the CurrentCell
property (a struct) is to set focus? That is why it changes color
(takes focus). What is your goal?

I am attempting to change the backColor property on the previously instantiated buttons FROM a listbox_doubleClick event. I thought it would be something like this: If Me.Controls.Item(iSeatNumber).BackColor.Equals(Color.White) Then Me.Controls.Item(iSeatNumber).BackColor.Equals(Color.CornflowerBlue) 'End If

Is it possible (and how?) to get the data grid column name based on the DataGrid.CurrentCell? The DataGrid has assigned a TableStyle comprising selected columns (DataGridTextBoxColumn) from the source DataTable (DataGrid.DataSource=DataTable). I would like to be able to get the column name of the datagrid based on the DataGrid current cell so I can reference the appropriate column in the source DataTable.

Someone has an example, C#, about how to set the cell(int row, int col) as the current cell for a DataGridView. The example, in the help file, about DataGrid.CurrentCell Property (Set) myGrid.CurrentCell = new DataGridCell(1,1); does not work, fro a DataGridView, since we cannot create a DataGridView Cell while specifying only its row and column.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
