    i want to get the ActiveCell postion, but fail.
    for example: gcSpreadSheet1.GetPostionByCell(row, col)??

    now, i just use the mousedown envent:
    void gcSpread1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)


    HitTestInformation info = gcSpreadSheet1.HitTest(e.GetPosition(gcSpreadSheet1).X, e.GetPosition(gcSpreadSheet1).Y);

    if (info.HitTestType == HitTestType.Corner)

    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets [0].SetText (0,0,"Click SheetCorner of control");

    if (info.HeaderInfo != null)


    if (info.HeaderInfo.InColumnResize)

    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetText(0, 0, "Column" + info.HeaderInfo.Column.ToString() + " is resizing");

    else if (info.HeaderInfo.InRowResize)

    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetText(0, 0, "Row" + info.HeaderInfo.Row.ToString() + " is resizing");

    You should be able to get cell position on MouseDown event using

    e.GetPosition(gcSpreadSheet1).X , e.GetPosition(gcSpreadSheet1).Y

    There is no direct method to get the cell position with Spread for Silverlight.
