    Point pt


Name Type Description
pt Point

A Point structure specifying the test point coordinates relative to the grid control’s top-left corner.


Type Description

A CardHitInfo object that contains information about View elements located at the test point.


Use the CalcHitInfo method to determine which element is located at a specified point. For instance, this can be used when handling the View’s Click event to determine which element was clicked. In such instances, you will pass the current mouse pointer’s coordinates as the method’s parameter.

Please refer to the CardHitInfo class description for details on what information is provided by the method’s return value. The Hit Information topic provides general information on obtaining and using hit information.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the CalcHitInfo member must not be invoked for these Views. The CalcHitInfo member can only be used with Views that display real data within the Grid Control. Use the following methods to access these Views with which an end user interacts at runtime.


The following code demonstrates how to determine over which element of the Card View the mouse pointer is located.

using System.Windows.Forms;

private void gridControl1_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) {
      DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Card.ViewInfo.CardHitInfo chi = 
        cardView1.CalcHitInfo(new System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y));
      string elementName = chi.HitTest.ToString();
