    Using Code

    The following example sets the active cell with the SetActiveCell method.

    CS
    Copy Code
    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetActiveCell(5, 5);
    gcSpreadSheet1.Invalidate();
    private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            {
            listBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].ActiveCell().ToString());
            listBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].ActiveColumn.ToString());
            listBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].ActiveColumnIndex);
            listBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].ActiveRow.ToString());
            listBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].ActiveRowIndex);
            gcSpreadSheet1.Invalidate();
             }
    private void gcSpreadSheet1_EnterCell(object sender, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.UI.EnterCellEventArgs e)
            {
            listBox1.Items.Add(e.Column.ToString());
            listBox1.Items.Add(e.Row.ToString());
            }
    private void gcSpreadSheet1_LeaveCell(object sender, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.UI.LeaveCellEventArgs e)
        {
           listBox1.Items.Add(e.Column.ToString());
           listBox1.Items.Add(e.Row.ToString());
       }
    
    VB.NET
    Copy Code
    GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets(0).SetActiveCell(5, 5)
    GcSpreadSheet1.Invalidate()
    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            ListBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets(0).ActiveCell().ToString())
            ListBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets(0).ActiveColumn.ToString())
            ListBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets(0).ActiveColumnIndex)
            ListBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets(0).ActiveRow.ToString())
            ListBox1.Items.Add(GcSpreadSheet1.Sheets(0).ActiveRowIndex)
            GcSpreadSheet1.Invalidate()
        End Sub
    Private Sub GcSpreadSheet1_EnterCell(sender As System.Object, e As GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.UI.EnterCellEventArgs) Handles GcSpreadSheet1.EnterCell
            ListBox1.Items.Add(e.Column.ToString())
            ListBox1.Items.Add(e.Row.ToString())
        End Sub
        Private Sub GcSpreadSheet1_LeaveCell(sender As System.Object, e As GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.UI.LeaveCellEventArgs) Handles GcSpreadSheet1.LeaveCell
            ListBox1.Items.Add(e.Column.ToString())
            ListBox1.Items.Add(e.Row.ToString())
