Hello,

someone knows how i can get the Location - X Coordinate of a Column or Cell Control / Element?
I could not manage it to get the position / location of the Column.

I only found the Location Property of the Cell Element.

radGV.CurrentCell.Location.X

But the Value is always 0.

Why I need this - I have a GridView and above the Grid I want to place a TextBox with the same Width and Location of the current Cell / Column. When I press a special key - the TextBox will stuck at the current Location - with that i want to highlight that this Column is Fixed ( I dont want to pin it ).

Best Regards,

Raimund

Hello,

If I understand you correctly, you should just be able to use the mouse down to get the location.

E.g.
void radGridView1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    System.Drawing.Point point = Control.MousePosition;
    MessageBox.Show(point.ToString());
}

Hope that helps

Hello Raimund,

You can use the ControlBoundingRectangle property of CurrentCell. It gives you the position of the cell relative to the location of the RadGridView control. You can find the absolute position of the cell using the following code snippet:
int cellX = this.radGridView1.CurrentCell.ControlBoundingRectangle.X + this.radGridView1.Location.X;
int cellY = this.radGridView1.CurrentCell.ControlBoundingRectangle.Y + this.radGridView1.Location.Y;

I hope it helps.

Best regards,
